Just a little correction. The line Sparc 4/280 40 32 MB SunOs gcc 2.1 15145 R. Dentzer
Sparc 4/280 16 40 MB SunOs gcc 2.1 15145 R. Dentzer
i.e. the machine has 40 MB of main memory and a frequency of 16 MHz.
And as I am just at it, do the authors of "combinat.tst" know
what is mainly measured by this benchmark? From a gprof it seems
that most of the time is spent in the GAP Interpreter (>50 %)
and only very little for doing arithmetic and memory management (<5 % each).
Does this reflect time usage of typical GAP routines? What about
permutations, AG groups, finite fields, cyclotomic fields?
