Console output


Benefits include:

  • Simpler in its syntax. Can be parsed even with AWK.

  • Less verbose, which may constitute a performance gain on really slow hardware.


Drawbacks include:

  • Less robust error-handling. Is meant for human reading, not for parsing by machines.

  • Does not tell you when a statement has finished or when it is being processed.
