JavaScript performance comparison

Revision 2 of this test case created by Stuart Carnie

Preparation code


      
      <script>
Benchmark.prototype.setup = function() {
  var f = function(){
    return this;
  };
  
  var that = {
    f: f
  };
  
  var bound = f.bind(that);
  
  var slice = Array.prototype.slice;
  Function.prototype.bind2 = function(_this) {
    var _self = this;
    var args = slice.call(arguments, 1);
  
    return function() {
      if (args.length === 0 && arguments.length === 0)
         return _self.call(_this);
      else if (arguments.length === 0)
         return _self.apply(_this, args);
  
      var a2 = args.contact(slice.call(arguments));
      return _self.apply(_this, a2);
    }
  }
  
  var bound2 = f.bind2(that);
