The difference is negligible. Benchmark will frequently answer questions like these from a practical standpoint:
use Benchmark 'cmpthese'; use strict; my $x = 0; our $y = \$x; cmpthese( 10000000, { 'braces' => sub { return ${ $y } }, 'nobraces' => sub { return $$y }, });
My output is this:
Benchmark: timing 10000000 iterations of braces, nobraces... braces: 2 wallclock secs ( 1.87 usr + 0.00 sys = 1.87 CPU) @ 53 +47593.58/s (n=10000000) nobraces: 1 wallclock secs ( 1.87 usr + 0.00 sys = 1.87 CPU) @ 53 +47593.58/s (n=10000000) Rate nobraces braces nobraces 5347594/s -- 0% braces 5347594/s 0% --
If there is a difference, it's not terribly significant. For more complicated references, there may be some loss one way or another, but I doubt it would be much, if anything. Best as I could tell from using B::Deparse, the opcodes generated are different, but they likely work out to about the same thing (at least for hard refereneces... which you should be using exclusively). I find braces generally obnoxious, and so I avoid them when possible. However, they're a necessary evil, as demonstrated by the difference in y and z in the following:
my $x = [ [ 1, 2 ], [ 3, 4 ] ]; my @y = @$x->[ 0 ]; my @z = @{ $x->[ 0 ] };

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.
