Ticket #188 (new defect)

Opened 8 years ago

Chained comparisons should be implemented with strong types when possible

Description

The implementation of chained comparisons uses the dynamic type even when an expression such as 0 <= i < 9 where i is type int could run at "full native speed" using all ints.

For example, it should be possible to show that the above expression is substantially slower than "0 <= i and i < 9".
