B4J Question Debug mode is much slower than Release mode when using resumable subs

I found that the debug mode is very slow when testing the project which I have uploaded at this thread:
https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/t...en-many-subs-are-stringed.106328/#post-665791

The result of processing a novel:

Debug Mode

B4X:
Waiting for debugger to connect...
Program started.
A3 Start
start time: 10:12:28
end time: 10:13:11
A3 End

Release Mode

B4X:
A3 Start
start time: 10:35:36
end time: 10:35:42
A3 End

Tested again on B4J 7.32. It is faster than the previous test. As this is debug mode, perhaps this result is reasonable. And it is an indication that my code needs optimization.

you should not use Dim inside a loop, it would create a new class object that is mostly unnecessary.

simple example:
at i 1,2,3 the output of a is empty
B4X:
Sub Test
   
    Dim i As Int
    For i = 0 To 3
        Dim a As String
        If i=0 Then a= "Hallo"
        Log(i)
        Log(a)
    Next
   
End Sub
about optimization,
count which sub is most used, also check which sub take the most time.
