Hi Mario,

thanks a lot for your comments and suggestions.

I did not expect such micro-optimizations to bring such a significant performance improvement, that's interesting. Especially replacing the division by 2 by a bit shift is the type of thing that I had stopped doing decades ago, when I figured that the C compiler I was using at the time was doing this type of optimization at least as well and often better than I was able to do. Good to be reminded that the optimizations you suggested can also be quite useful. Thank you.

Following this very interesting thread and your new thread on MCE::Flow + Caching via File::Map, I made a new blog post on the Collatz sequence, trying to summarize some of the findings: http://blogs.perl.org/users/laurent_r/2020/04/revisiting-the-collatz-sequence-pwc-54.html. I did not try to explain your demonstration using File::Map for caching with parallel processing (your other thread) because I'm not sure to fully understand everything and was afraid of mis-representing your work. People can follow the link and read your own words.

Thank you very much for your challenging ideas.

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