Are we sure about this? I find it really hard to believe that
'warnings' isn't affecting performance on some level. I doubt it's
a big hit, but I would be very surprised if it doesn't cost
I know you weren't suggesting to the contrary, but as I keep saying
(although nobody seems to agree with me) it's pointless to worry
about the speed of the program unless it's too slow. It's worth
noting that we have a lot of questions about whether such-and-such
a construct has a performance hit, but almost never about
unnacceptably slow programs that need speeding up. I doubt if
it's because all of the optimisation tips are taken to heart!
It's twenty or thirty years since we had to write programs carefully
so that they would fit in 4KB of RAM and complete before the end of
