if console output is slowing down a run make sure you have an efficient 
console (i use conemu on windows and on unixes i always make sure that i 
use a proper font); sometimes you can set delays (standard cmd on 
windows is char-by-char but there are variants); when one runs from an 
editor normally the drawbacks are neglectable (at leats in scite)
