Can someone look into the compiler for Scala? It seems to be significantly slower than other languages. For example, the exact same one line solution for this problem:
Integer.bitCount(x ^ y);
computes in 11ms in Java, but 478 ms in Scala!
I ran this simple problem as a test because my solutions in Scala for more complex problems always end with "Time Limit Exceeded". I hope the Scala time limit can be increased in general so people can actually use the language.
