It's pretty hard to tell how you could document that without knowing what 
hardware you're interested in.  I daresay the range of performances is 
quite wide, varying between 486-class systems running at 100 MHz or so to 
multiprocessor P4/Athlon/IA64/UltraSPARC class processors running on high 
end machines.


        Where am I, and what am I doing in this handbasket?
