7. Is there a run-time overhead with Genesis V?


There are no inherent techniques employed within Genesis V programs that lead to run-time efficiency problems, neither are the programs riddled with redundant code.  I/0 is handled efficiently.

If there is any 'overhead' then it  might be that  the program sizes will be larger because Genesis V encourages you to produce more sophisticated, higher function programs than you would attempt to produce manually.

In the unlikely event of a problem occurring then the well-commented program can be reviewed by a competent programmer and fine tuned for efficiency  in minutes  rather than hours.  This is another 'first' in generator technology, resulting from the ability of Genesis V to 'remember' change code, as described in 6 (iv).
