Perhaps you missed the significance of the timings:

C:\test>1011850 -O=100000 Dict read at C:\test\1011850.pl line 96. objects loaded at C:\test\1011850.pl line 106. App created at C:\test\1011850.pl line 112. Ovid: (optimal ordering) returned 9193 objs in 4.447958 seconds Ovid: (pessimal ordering) returned 9193 objs in 7.236690 seconds RichardK: (optimal ordering) returned 9193 objs in 4.065038 seconds RichardK: (pessimal ordering) returned 9193 objs in 6.219226 seconds BUK: returned 9193 objs in 0.760572 seconds Filters run at C:\test\1011850.pl line 138.

Running your OP algorithm against a set of 100 filters each carefully arrange to filter an increasing number of objects and ordered best to worst, and running two tests -- optimal and pessimal -- the difference between then is less that 50%. That is the best you can hope to achieve with your order-the-filters mechanism.

However, by altering the way the filters operate upon the objects, you can achieve an order of magnitude saving.

Or perhaps you've just decided how you want to tackle the problem. Regardless...

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
