Consider the following dummy example:
function f(x) println("We called the generic") prod(x) end function f(x::Real) println("We called the method") x end # Some checks: f(1) f([1 2])
How can I force
f(1) to run the generic, to compare it’s performance w.r.t the specialized method ? (using e.g.
I’d like to benchmark my generic function f against the specialized methods to be sure that they are worth it: they return the same thing as the generic, just written in an hopefully faster way. If the time gain is not effective, i might just remove these methods and simplify my package.
