I ran these myself with the following results:

[bloom@kartvelian ~]$ time java Double

real	0m3.709s
user	0m3.664s
sys	0m0.012s

[bloom@kartvelian ~]$ time ./double

real	0m0.573s
user	0m0.572s
sys	0m0.000s

I don't know what you're seeing, but it looks odd that your user time
should be so small compared to real time, for this type of processor
bound program. Thus, I don't think this is an optimization problem.


I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
