[kaffe] split function (String): slow implementation

Hi all,

I tested the following program, where I use
the split functin.

the 1st call to split needs 7/8 seconds to be accomplished, while
all the following calls are quickly done.
(kaffe-1.1.6 compiles on a MIPS platgorm - AMD au1100, 400MHz)

It seems that kaffe need to to something (parser initialization?)
very time consuming: is it a normal behaviour, or should not
happen this?


public class Spl {

    public Spl() {
	String s = "Marameo|va|che|beo";
	String s2 = "Marameo2|va2|che2|beo2";
	String [] subs = null;
	subs = s.split("\\|");
	System.out.println("OK " + subs[1]);

	subs = s2.split("\\|");
	System.out.println("OK " + subs[1]);


    public static void main(String[] args) {
	Spl spl = new Spl();
