Description Eric Seidel 2007-11-06 10:57:47 PST
add() could use additional speedups

Some suggestions brought up in bug 15837 but not implemented, include:

1.  Combine both types into a "type mask" using uint32_t typeMask = t1 << 3 | t2; and then check the resulting type mask instead of t1 == StringType && t2 == StringType
2.  Speed up addSlowCase by passing in the typeMask and only calling toPrimative when needed
3.  Speed up addSlowCase by avoiding calling toString() and using static_cast<StringImp*>(foo)->value() when possible.

Oliver did (1) already.

This will actually be fixed more by bug 15884.  I'm going to re-write AddNode into specialized versions to exploit at least #3.  #2 becomes irrelevant.

Eric, is this bug still valid?

/me sounds like a broken record, yeah

I don't think JSC code looks anything like this anymore.  But I've not hacked on it in over a year now. :(
