I am an experienced programmer. I already have an idea or theory as to what the answer is to this question, but, I am not afraid to poll the audience to see what everyone else thinks.
This question is about loops. *Which is faster?*
1. for (;;)
2. while (1)
/* code snippet start*/
//... perform instruction
/* end code snippet */
I would ask to satify my question that you provide which one, and why. Why being timing issues, how many instructions per cycle, or some other profiling tool or timing tool you used.
