Re: Random Numbers

What I'm working on is a very simple text editor with a password feature to use to store the many passwords you end up with if you are active on the internet.

Comparing Bruja and Cupcake, C++ is not quite twice as fast as Java (.jar file).

And, thanks Dann for your info.

C# vs C++

What's the approximate speed difference (if any) for a chess program written in C# and C++?

Thanks
