Which is faster?

I've got two codes that do the same thing, which is faster and why?
JASS:
method iterate takes code func returns nothing
    local trigger temp = CreateTrigger()
    local thistype cnt = this.guard
 
    call TriggerAddAction(temp, func)
 
    loop
        set cnt = cnt.next
    exitwhen cnt == cnt.guard
        set enumerable = cnt
        call TriggerExecute(temp)
    endloop
 
    call DestroyTrigger(temp)
    set temp = null
endmethod


JASS:
method iterate takes string funcname returns nothing
    local thistype cnt = this.guard
 
    loop
        set cnt = cnt.next
    exitwhen cnt == cnt.guard
        set enumerable = cnt
        call ExecuteFunc( funcname )
    endloop
 
endmethod
 
They both suck :\

JASS:
List list = List.create()
local integer sentinel = list
//populate
 
loop
    set list = list.next
    exitwhen list == sentinel
 
    //code
endloop

The second one is faster (according to old benchmarks), but some people stray away from it. There isn't really anything wrong with ExecuteFunc any more iirc (optimizer doesn't break it, and it doesn't crash when an invalid func is put in)

However, triggers are usually failsafe. If the function does not exist, it will throw an error. For ExecuteFunc, it just won't work. That's why some may prefer to use triggers. However, dynamic triggers (creating and destroying) are usually unnecessary. For example, if you just need to start a new thread or w/e, you can simply save the triggeraction to a local, execute the trigger, and then TriggerRemoveAction. Just use one global trigger, that way you don't need to destroy it.

I think some people said that TriggerEvaluate also runs on a new thread, but I can't confirm that. However, it may be something worth trying since TriggerEval is faster. (again, according to old benchmarks. Some things might've changed since)

    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.

    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years

    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.

    My daughter just got back from school at Georgetown TX, outside of Austin and said there were 100 cases in the last week but she also said nobody was wearing a mask anywhere so people mask up and stay safe!

    @Gyah Yeah I figured they aren't particularly valuable, but they'll at the least act as a baseline for some entry level work somewhere.
  • Varine Varine:
    I now see how horribly I spelled @Ghan
  • Varine Varine:
    I had a rough morning
  • The Helper The Helper:
    that field is going to explode and though there is competition there is going to be room for all levels in the coming years imho.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Why are we competing for rough mornings? :(
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't want to compete for that, yall can have it.
  • Varine Varine:
    @The Helper I'm trying. Once I am more prepared to be figuring out school I'll probably ask for your advice
  • Varine Varine:
    Right now I'm just trying to get through the pandemic and figure out how I'm going to pay for it, and figure out what I need to get a job at Best Buy instead of a kitchen somewhere.
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    oy just catching up on the discussion above. @Varine yeah I usually alternate between claritin & zyrtec, depending on whatever my body decides to reject at the time lol
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    the more I use it the less effective it gets over time as my body accustoms to it so I try to not use it every day

    Glad to see some interest in the IS3 NUON reprint. :)

  • The Helper The Helper:
    Thank you Carl for making that happen that just might be the spark we need.
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm confused and amazed that NUON and TWV's news postings are the things still active.
  • Varine Varine:
    Or Tom Mai, not TWV
  • Varine Varine:
    Whatever happened to Cheshire? Or Firecat, whatever his real name was?
  • Varine Varine:
    I've been using both claritin and fexofenadine or something like that recently alternately and that's been kinda working, I don't feel like my face is going to explode at least. Eyes are still itchy as fuck though
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I dunno, haven't seen Firecat in a long while now.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    By the way, we have new file attachment size limits now.
