Bertram, this is not answering your question, but I'm curious about the version of RexxCPS that you run, 2.2. I've just run the most current one for ooRexx 4.2.0 and it says 2.1 and also the iterations are different:

----- REXXCPS 2.1 -- Measuring REXX clauses/second -----
 REXX version is: REXX-ooRexx_4.2.0(MT)_32-bit 6.04 30 Jan 2014
       System is: WindowsNT
       Averaging: 100 measures of 100 iterations

Total (full DO): 0.01796 secs (average of 100 measures of 100 iterations)
Time for one iteration (1000 clauses) was: 0.0001796 seconds

     Performance: 5567929 REXX clauses per second

Where did you find 2.2?

Today, I downloaded and ran RexxCPS just for fun and my results were:

Just FYI:  System is:
Dell Workstation 390
Processor:  Intel Quad Q6700 (2.66Ghz)
RAM:          8GB
OS:             Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Rexx:          REXX-ooRexx_4.2.0(MT)_64-bit 6.04 30 Jan 2014

I realized this benchmark has a "narrow" viewpoint on testing Rexx and the various platforms people use with Rexx.  What also matters are the various aspects people use in their programs, such as:  I/O (Disk, Network, Console, Graphics, etc), use of workers, etc.

I'm wondering if anyone knows of other Rexx benchmark programs beyond RexxCPS OR has an interest in discussing what requirements would exist for wider ranging / view benchmark for Rexx?

Thank you,

Bertram Moshier
