basic bytecode to machine code compiler (part 3)

My compiler now supports the x86-64 instruction set, in addition to x86.
It also generates faster x86 machine code.

Although it's designed to support 64-bit Windows, I have only tested it
on Linux so far, and it doesn't support running with Windows' DEP yet.

It's available at https://github.com/Rouslan/nativecompile

Here are the new benchmark results. The 64-bit code has a better margin
of improvement even though the Python interpreter is already faster in
64-bit mode.

The first test performs a quicksort on a list of 100 numbers, 5000
times. The second calculates all the prime numbers up to 10000000. Each
test is run three times in a row, first with the interpreter, then with
the compiled code.

#### SCRIPT ONE ####

import time
import random
import nativecompile

bcode = compile('''
def quicksort(array):
if len(array) <= 1:
return array
pindex = len(array)//2
pivot = array[pindex]
less = []
greater = []
for i,x in enumerate(array):
if i != pindex:
(less if x <= pivot else greater).append(x)
return quicksort(less) + [pivot] + quicksort(greater)

in_ = list(range(100))
random.seed(346097)
random.shuffle(in_)

t = time.clock()
for x in range(5000):
out = quicksort(in_)
t = time.clock()-t

assert out == sorted(in_)

print('execution time: {}'.format(round(t,10)))
''','<string>','exec')

mcode = nativecompile.compile(bcode)

print('byte code')
for x in range(3): eval(bcode)
print()

print('machine code')
for x in range(3): mcode()
print()

#### X86 OUTPUT ####

#### SCRIPT TWO ####

import time
import math
import nativecompile

bcode = compile('''
def primes_list(upto):
nums = [True] * (upto//2-1)

for i in range(3,math.floor(math.sqrt(upto))+1,2):
if nums[i//2-1]:
for j in range(i*3,upto,i*2):
nums[j//2-1] = False

primes = []
for i,n in enumerate(nums):
if n: primes.append((i+1)*2+1)

return primes

t = time.clock()
primes = primes_list(10000000)
t = time.clock()-t

print(primes[-1])
print('execution time: {}'.format(round(t,10)))
''','<string>','exec')

mcode = nativecompile.compile(bcode)

print('byte code')
for x in range(3): eval(bcode)
print()

print('machine code')
for x in range(3): mcode()
print()

Just curious, is there a reason why you wrote this last line that way
instead of using a "normal" if/else clause?

Cheers!

No special reason. I just like concise code.
