I have no laboratory data, but from my experience, Eztrieve is slower then COBOL, even in its compiled flavour.

I agree with O,

Eztrieve uses canned routines to accomplish MOVEs, ADDs, SUBTRACTs, Etc. What a ?Complied? Eztrieve program does is not have to interpret the instructions each time the program runs, But, it still uses the canned routines. The COBOL Compiler, on the other hand, generates specific machine instructions for the COBOL statement you have given it.
