Autobench released at last

At last I managed to release Autobench, the incremental benchmark runner that powers http://sbcl.boinkor.net/bench/. Get it at http://boinkor.net/lisp/autobench/autobench-0.4.tar.gz. This version includes support for benchmarking CMUCL and SBCL. The README should tell you most of what you need to know.

By the way, it’s nice to know that the protocol I mentioned in the 2004-11-22 entry is sustainable. The implementation of the benchmark protocol for cmucl snapshots is about 90 lines of lisp code (which unfortunately is pretty ugly, due to some suboptimalities in cmucl snapshot packages).

Now somebody really should add support for CLisp. Hey look, it’s open source. (-;
