Debug vs Build speeds...

I haven’t officially made the plunge and upgraded my license to Xojo yet, but I’m thinking about it. I do have a quick question, though:

I haven’t done much testing on RealStudio with this; however, it makes sense that apps in ‘debug mode’ would run more slowly than their standard compiled versions… I’m just curious how much of a difference in speed there is between the two? Will I see much of any noticeable speed increase in my ‘built’ apps vs the ‘debug’ ones that I use during testing within the IDE while using Xojo?

Definitely. It’s been a while since I’ve done any benchmarking, but in the past it was about 10% and even higher with more complicated programs.

Awesome… that’s what I was wanting to hear! I figured, just didn’t know by how much. I’ll take 50-100%+ increase… :slight_smile:

If you’re doing any critical optimization work, it’s always best to test with a built app, as you can’t always tell how much of an improvement you’re making in a debug app.
