This allows a greater compatibility and portability of .NET applications,
This is shown by the following test.
I've converted the Raytracer Demo featured on the JSIL website to the Saltarelle compiler, with the aim to compare the execution speed of the two versions.
Result of the testI ran the test on a four core Athlon AMD processor with Windows 7 and Chrome browser. The result is summarized in the table:
|Script code size (.js)||108 KB||15 MB|
|Average time/pixel||0.006 ms||0.093 ms|
So, on average, Saltarelle is 15 times faster than JSIL. Impressive!
The output script code is also very small-sized with no loading time, while the JSIL version has to download 15 MB of stuff before it can start.
