Vala and C Speed
I recently discovered a programming language called Vala. It's an object-oriented language and the syntax looks kind of like a cross between Python and Java. It looks interesting to me and as far as I can tell, the Vala compiler takes your Vala code and translates it into C, and then compiles it.
Considering Vala code is translated (I suppose cross-compiled is the term) into C code before being compiled into a binary, does that mean Vala programs would generally be just as fast as programs written in C?
