As the array size grows, it doesn't take long for the OPs original to out pace variation1. It only requires a 200,000 or so for that to happen, and the benefits mount geometrically as the array size grows:

#!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; use Benchmark qw(:all); our @array = 'aaaa' .. 'lzzz'; print "$#array\n"; sub original { my %hash; for (my $idx=0; $idx<@array; $idx++) { $hash{$array[$idx]} = $idx;} } sub variation1 { my %hash; @hash{ @array } = 0 .. $#array; } sub variation2 { my %hash = map { $array[$_] => $_ } 0..$#array; } sub variation3 { my $idx = 0; my %hash = map { $_ => $idx++ } @array; } sub variation4 { my $idx = 0; my %hash; $hash{ $_ } = $idx++ for @array; } cmpthese -5, { 'original' => \&original, 'variation1' => \&variation1, 'variation2' => \&variation2, 'variation3' => \&variation3, 'variation4' => \&variation4, }; __END__ C:\test>junk91 210911 Rate variation2 variation3 variation1 original variatio +n4 variation2 2.08/s -- -2% -36% -38% -4 +2% variation3 2.12/s 2% -- -35% -37% -4 +1% variation1 3.26/s 57% 54% -- -3% - +9% original 3.37/s 62% 59% 3% -- - +6% variation4 3.57/s 72% 68% 9% 6% +--

(I've added another variation that works better for large arrays.)

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
