Subject [jira] Created: (STDCXX-491) string::push_back() slow
Date Sun, 22 Jul 2007 20:27:06 GMT
string::push_back() slow

                 Key: STDCXX-491
             Project: C++ Standard Library
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: 21. Strings
    Affects Versions: 4.1.3
         Environment: gcc 4.1.2, Linux/x86_64
            Reporter: Mark Brown

According to my timings string::push_back() in stdcxx 4.1.3 is more than twice as slow than
the same function in gcc 4.1.2 on Linux x86_64:

$ time ./push_back-stdcxx 100000000

real    0m2.175s
user    0m2.004s
sys     0m0.172s

$ time ./push_back-gcc 100000000

real    0m0.924s
user    0m0.760s
sys     0m0.164s

#include <cassert>
#include <cstdlib>
#include <string>

int main (int argc, char *argv[])
    const int N = argc < 2 ? 1 : std::atoi (argv [1]);

    std::string str;

    for (int i = 0; i < N; ++i)
        str.push_back ('x');

    assert (str.size () == std::size_t (N));

Comparing the generated assembly, the gcc push_back() is mostly inline but the stdcxx push_back()
is not:
