  Description     : a popular benchmark for CPU/compiler performance measurement

The Dhrystone benchmark program has become a popular benchmark for
CPU/compiler performance measurement, in particular in the area of
minicomputers, workstations, PC's and microprocesors. It apparently satisfies
a need for an easy-to-use integer benchmark; it gives a first performance
indication which is more meaningful than MIPS numbers which, in their literal
meaning (million instructions per second), cannot be used across different
instruction sets (e.g. RISC vs. CISC). With the increasing use of the
benchmark, it seems necessary to reconsider the benchmark and to check whether
it can still fulfill this function. Version 2 of Dhrystone is the result of
such a re-evaluation.
