Hi,

I have a project I'm working on which requires sheer brute force to get the answer. I was wondering what programming language would perform a huge number of simple mathmatical calculations the fastest.

I do not have any other requirement other than being able to come up with the answer in the shortest timescale possible... at the moment although this is very vague I am estimating it would take my computer approximately 5 months to perform all the calculations, based on a trial run of a smaller amount of data.

I have no idea what would be best... Would an older "simpler" language such as Pascal be faster or an object orientated language or....

Any advice would be appreciated

Thanks

Dave
