I wouldn't be to sure of that. Recently I became interested in the
divisors of a given natural number.
The obvious Fortran program is:
integer*8 n, i, j, k
read(arg, '(i20)') n
i = n
j = 1
k = i / j
do while (k .ge. j)
if (i .eq. k * j) print*, k, j
j = j + 1
k = i / j
[ OK, this isn't purely Fortran 77, but close enough that
most compilers will do the *right thing* ]
I tried it on 32 bit Linux (at work) and my laptop (AMD64 Linux), using
The execution time difference was about 2 orders of magnitude.
