I've recently discovered that SimpleIDE supports the Spin language. I'm really new to that language, and I'm confused because it can be compiled (or translated to machine code) or interpreted on chip, depending on the reference I read. So, my question is, if I use SimpleIDE to program in Spin, will my code compile or be interpreted on the fly?
I ask this because interpreted languages are not my cup of tea, as they are by no means faster.
Also, is C actually being compiled, or sort of interpreted? I notice that it could be a lot faster. My PC has two "cogs" running at 3.2GHz, and is at least 1000x plus faster when calculating prime numbers than the P8X32A, that has 8 cogs, but uses 7 of them to perform the calculations. Doesn't make sense that the difference is so big, considering that I'm using LMM to boost it up.
Kind regards, Samuel Lourenço
