This should read:
Secondly there is AN UNUSUALLY large cost for using uBLAS. Maybe this is
what Christopher is seeing?
I have run similar bench1 tests on Boost_1_31_0 and 1_32_0. I get similar
results for the latter. The former shows VC7.1 had slightly better
performance on the older version.
Anyone have any compiler options or pragma tips for VC7.1
If not I think we need to include a performance warning in the documentation
for this compiler.
