Table 2: Runtime comparison of the implementations: C++ on Pentium $^{\scriptsize\textregistered}$ 4 (3 GHz), IDL on Xeon (2.8 GHz). The last column shows a rough estimate of the runtime of the IDL implementation on the slower Pentium $^{\scriptsize\textregistered}$ machine using the conversion factor 1.15.
