ginger_matt: No, no and no. Anyone who thinks this is a "personal attack" should look again. I have nothing against Julian, _but_ what he said was clearly misleading.

My statements are about the "faster" code in GCC remain consistent - I also said that it's marginal. So, I don't really see the point of what you're saying, other than a weak attempt to take a contrary position just for the sake of it.

mripley: Nothing I've said is defensive. In fact, I've given Julian _ample_ oppurtunity to show that what he's saying is true. I'm quite happy for someone to demonstrate contrary evidence to what I've given. Julian has given none at all on this occassion, and many, many others

So, we have a situation where someone has made an unjustified statement, and it's been corrected. Then that person has tried so defend their position - for what reason, it's not clear. Spreading misinformation has hugely damaged RISC OS in the past, and just because people are getting a little upset doesn't make it ok now.
