I've just written an algorithm using Construct Events that manipulates a huge array (around 4.8 million items of data), and it works beautifully, taking around 2 minutes 18 seconds to complete.
Now, I was about to write the same algorithm in Python just to compare the speed, and I came across a couple of threads here that may mean I'd be wasting my time.
First of all, I noticed a conversation from last year where there was talk of the speed difference between events and Python, and it seemed that events were thought to be faster (if that's true, well done Ash & Co).
Secondly, in another thread, someone mentioned that Python couldn't access Construct arrays directly, and the overhead of the workaround would mean that it would lose any speed advantage you may have gained.
Now, I realise that this place has gone pretty quiet again, but I thought I'd ask anyway.
Anyone have any further insight into this?
