A comparative analysis of the performance of floating point and integer based line drawing algorithms for raster displays
In order to predict and analyze the performance of both floating point and integer line drawing algorithms the performance of individual instructions is examined. A select group of line drawing algorithms are implemented and timed in performance tests. An algorithms accuracy is observed along with its performance in three tests. These tests are performed on five computers for comparison. The effects of utilizing the standard code optimizer is included as an integral part of the research.
