Mozilla Branches for 0.9.8

Wednesday January 23rd, 2002

mozilla.org today branched for Mozilla Milestone 0.9.8, as well as opened the tree for 0.9.9 checkins. Look for branch builds to start sometime later this week, as early as tomorrow. (While a certain site believes that without builds, you can't have a branch, that is not true.) Pre-0.9.9 trunk builds will start tomorrow, or possibly tonight. See our earlier story for what's new in 0.9.8.


#61 Your script is all wrong

First of all, the han() function will never return any useful information. It only returns the "output" result when stepsdone==stepsto. stepsto is always 0 and stepsdone is never 0, so no data is ever returned.

Second, and most importantly, I compiled the script to C++ code to compare the performance. As C++ code, the han() function did not return after more than 10 minutes -- At the 10 minute mark, it had appended to the output string over 170 million times (I never waited for it to complete)

How would expect a web browser to handle a function like this?
