Chris's Random Ramblings
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.
