Trivial terminal speed benchmark
Today, while playing with st, I tried a very simple benchmark. Here it is:
$> time seq -f 'teeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeest %g' 999999
Here are the results:
xterm: 0m28.508s rxvt: 0m8.568s st: 0m12.082s
Being st at such an early stage of development, I think this is a good result.
