This is premature optimisation gone mad! For most purposes for speed to be a factor in this decision the array would need to contain of the order of 1 million entries.

Sure, benchmarks are fun to write (although often hard to make meaningful), but the overwhelming criteria in this sort of coding decision is clarity and maintainability of the code. By that metric on both counts 'original' is way down the list. I'd go for variation 1 or a for modifier version of 'original', either of which is clear, succinct and not particularly prone to coding errors.

True laziness is hard work

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
