Tests were made on different PCs running Windows XP and Vista and compiled with VC9 SP1 or Ubuntu and compiled with g++ 4.2 and 4.3. For these tests, the same player state machine was written using Boost.Statechart, as a state machine with only simple states and as a state machine with a composite state. The same simple and composite state machines are implemented with MSM with a standard frontend (simple)(composite), the simple one also with functors and with eUML. As these simple machines need no terminate/interrupt states, no message queue and have no-throw guarantee on their actions, the MSM state machines are defined with minimum functionality. Test machine is a Q6600 2.4GHz, Vista 64.
