Be careful with this link, the results may be ok for higher level
languages with built-in datatypes, but they are not for low level
languages. One example i've looked at just yesterday demonstrates
this nicely:

The C version has a very generic (and for this problem set ineffective)
hash table implementation, while the C++ examples use every trick in
the book to make hashed lists for each of the different iterations to
get much better performance.

Take a look at the implementation before you draw any conclusion,
that's all.
