That said, you still have to write efficient algorithm, otherwise the compiler's effort is void. Also there are some things to keep in mind with modern architectures.See this for a great example: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/11227809/why-is-processing-a-sorted-array-faster-than-an-unsorted-array.

People did not code much for the Nspire because they either wanted to push outdated platforms to their limits, which was more entertaining on the 83+/84+/89 series, or they wanted full-scale power, such as smartphones and computers.@DarkestEx have you gotten any luck with C64 developement so far?
