Yea I thought of that, but doing so made it take twice the time:

list<rect*> rl;
for(int i=3D0; i<1000000; i++) {
=09rect *r=3Dnew rect;

Hi Cory,

In the C++ sample, you are passing the rect by value, so you are
saving a copy in the list. In C# a reference to the object is used, so
there is no copy-construction overhead.

You can change the list<rect> to a list<rect*>, but this way you have
to manage the memory by yourlself.

Just got done installing the VS.NET 2005 preview and did a small test.

I compared an ArrayList of Rectangles to a List<Rectangle>, and timed
inserting 1mil rects into each.  I also wrote an equivalent c++ app.=20
Got some interesting results:

ArrayList: 265ms
List<Rectangle>: 62ms
list<rect>: 141ms

So it seems with generics .NET is finally faster than c++ (at least,
in this case).
