За оптимизирането…

Малко мъдри думи за оптимизирането.

More computing sins are committed in the name of efficiency (without
necessarily achieving it) than for any other single reason—including blind
stupidity.
——William A. Wulf [Wulf72]
We should forget about small efficiencies, say about 97% of the time:
premature optimization is the root of all evil.
——Donald E. Knuth [Knuth74]

We follow two rules in the matter of optimization:
Rule 1. Don’t do it.
Rule 2 (for experts only). Don’t do it yet—that is, not until you have a perfectly
clear and unoptimized solution.
——M. A. Jackson [Jackson75]
