Is there anyone here who has actually converted their C code to C++ while
keeping the NPS the same or even managed to improve upon it? Sune did mention
that he did so only at the cost of 15% degradation in speed. Why do people even
bother wasting their time with C++ for a chess program when it inevitably leads
to taking a hit in NPS? Regardless, of all the advice to simply inline the
functions, I have yet to see a living example of chess program code which
performed faster in C++.
