Unfortunately Dr. Dobbs' Journal just published an article describing
benchmarks for C++.  While the benchmarks look interesting, the author
tested the exceptions performance of g++ 2.7.2.1 !  (Sigh).  And this
is for a piece in the October 1998 issue.  Even assuming a publication
delay of six months that is really unfortunate.
