Re^3: Is Using Threads Slower Than Not Using Threads?by BrowserUk (Pope)

Oh dear. Think context!
To be more explicit. Think of the context in which I said what I said. Think of the purpose of that.
Just as newbies don't need to be appraised up front with the details of the inner working of the regex engine, they don't need to be appraised of the inner workings of threads. The point was simply that without having been shared, each thread will get an independent, unshared copy of the array.
Your interjection is:
Your time might be better spent where it would be most valuable. Eg. correcting some of the unnecessary extravagances of the current implementation.
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
