Subject [jira] [Commented] (MATH-579) FastMath.pow much slower than Math.pow
Date Wed, 18 May 2011 15:06:47 GMT


Phil Steitz commented on MATH-579:

I think Luc did a great job providing the right information to users.  In answer to your question,
Gilles, there are some applications where 100ms is a big deal and if they just make one or
two calls, the associated latency will be surprising and could cause problems for them.  If
we get a lot of feedback from users indicating that this latency is a material practical problem
for them, or prevents them using the library, we may want to consider making the embedded
use configurable.  I can think of only a few cases in my experience where this might be an
issue; but I am thankful to Arne for having pointed it out and Luc for improving the documentation.
