Re: why so slow? gcc vs vc6

As far as I understand profiling you must not read the time results as the values you got without profiling. Profiling is there to find inefficiencies in your code, such as unneccessary loops etc. and thus the times are only to compare the different calls. Additionally it is very likely that gprof called you app several times, to get a better comparison. (That is only how i understand profiling, dont beat me if i am wrong)

You can see that your program spend the most time for the logarithmic calculation, followed by the power caculation.

In my opinion your problem is that you did not use fast-math, as far as i know vc uses a math lib with similar optimizations by default.

so as Ishwar Rattan mentioned, if speed is important and vc6 is faster that use vc6.

I'm wondering is the total time as much as 23.46 seconds? I'm
