in thread printing every 2nd entry in a list backwards

I just tried it on my laptop:

$ python --version Python 2.7.12 $ time python in.txt > pyout.txt real 0m1.927s user 0m1.898s sys 0m0.028s
$ perl -v This is perl 5, version 18, subversion 2 (v5.18.2) built for x86_64-li +nux-thread-multi [...] $ time perl in.txt > haukex-out.t +xt real 0m2.309s user 0m2.290s sys 0m0.020s

No differences in the two output files. However, note Perl 5.24.1 is faster than both Python 2.7.12 and Perl 5.18.1:

$ perl5.24.1 -v This is perl 5, version 24, subversion 1 (v5.24.1) built for x86_64-li +nux-thread-multi [...] $ time perl5.24.1 in.txt > haukex +-out-5.24.1.txt real 0m1.759s user 0m1.740s sys 0m0.016s

And also Python 3.4 is slower than any of the above:

$ python3.4 --version Python 3.4.5 $ time python3.4 in.txt > pyout-3.4.txt real 0m2.493s user 0m2.444s sys 0m0.048s

    Good point! In my test above I was pitting Python 2.7.6 against Perl 5.22.0. I can confirm that both Perl 5.18.2. and Python 3.4.3 are slower by a factor of roughly 1.3 to 1.4 on my machine (those are just the versions I have lying around at the moment).
