No measured difference in my tests, I guess it depends on likelyhood
to fail/succeed early in the string or not.

That's the purpose of newtest.c (vs Christophe's test.c): try both...

That's expected (or at least no cared about in this test case).
We simply want res to not be optimized out, so print it before

optimized versions should return the same res with the same args,
ascii strings only, though).
