It's obvious that the benchmark is flawed. This is also stated at
their website. everyone knows that benchmarks are flawed

I'd say it's more like a game.

But, it's also interresting to see that in all benchmarks I've ever
seen Perl, Python and Java are dozens of times slower and consumes
dozens of times more memory then c or pascal software.

And it's also nice to see that pascal compares to c in speed. (The
exact detail about if one is better in this benchmark or not is of
course irrelevant). This means that if I ever need it, I can tweak my
pascal code to be very fast.
