PyPy: Assembler Wanted

March 11, 2009 § Leave a comment

March has been a good month for PyPy project. In this post, their JIT is 20x faster than CPython. The code is below:

i = 0
while i < 10000000:
i = i + 1

From the blog post(s), the JIT is generated via tracing the code’s bytecode. The post said that most of their crashes happened because of unsupported operator on the assembler back-end.

Since, PyPy project allows multiple back-ends (well… that’s the whole point), having more assembly developers working on the JIT would be a great thing to realize its speed potential.

(I know, I know, the point of PyPy project is not just for speed, but there are a lot of people who are enthusiastic for this reason)

So, if you know friends who know assembly, spread the words…
