  • Continued experimentation with benchmark script and attempting to create the first patch by fixing the following block in the script.
   # FIXME: should really iterate one file at a time so we don't
   # just zero-pad at the end
   perf_VGRREF=`grep RTFM $perf_ref_files | sed -n -e 's/^.*= *//' -e 's/ rays.*//p' | tr '\012' '\011' `
   perf_CURVALS=`grep RTFM $perf_cur_files | sed -n -e 's/^.*= *//' -e 's/ rays.*//p' | tr '\012' '\011' `

  • Ran the benchmark on the machine and sent the report to
  • Started looking into the script to figure out how it really works.
