Speed review

Nov 8, 2015
Which TCMD version is fastest and most efficient ?
Is it faster then the latest Windows 10 cmd.exe ?
Is TCC/LE as fast as or even still faster than the current cmd.exe ?

Fastest at what, exactly? As AnrDaemon says, the underlying OS and file system will be the limiting factor for many operations.

For interactive use, on the other hand, speed is limited by your own brain and fingers. I find I can do stuff faster in TCC versus CMD.EXE simply because I have to push fewer keys.

Fastest is often not the best choice. It only really matters about the milliseconds if you're cranking through the routine millions of times or more. Then you bum the hell out of it. Simply rearranging the memory moves in one proggie i wrote saved days of computation times, because the stuff was processed a billion times. But if the thing's done about twenty times a minute, you don't worry too much of it.
