Chris's Random Ramblings

Fri, 05 Nov 2004 - Pretty, but slow

In an xterm:


cyeoh@rockhopper:~/foo$ time make clean
...
real    0m2.072s
user    0m1.015s
sys     0m0.518s

In a gnome terminal:


cyeoh@rockhopper:~/foo$ time make clean
...
real    0m43.680s
user    0m1.122s
sys     0m0.651s

gnome-terminal might be pretty, but the time difference is insane. What is going on here? Unknown to me, a significant proportion of some of my compilation times has been due to printing the output to the screen.
