I’ve just discovered RemObjects and I’m liking what I’m seeing. I’m potentially moving from another language (Xojo) because I’m hitting the limitations of that tool with regards to performance.
I’m writing my own bytecode interpreter for a Python-like scripting language and I’m looking to rewrite the VM in a higher performance language. However, my only experience is with garbage collected languages (I don’t like C, etc).
I’m planning on rewriting my VM in Swift as I think that should be better performing than Xojo and I’d like to use Silver as the thought of writing Swift for both macOS and Windows is appealing.
My question is on the performance of code created by the Elements compiler. Does it compile Swift to native machine code? Would the performance of the emitted executable be comparable to the “official” Apple Swift compiler?
