( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Can anybody ellaborate on this statement by Ovid. This small side note is interesting to me and i want to know more. I'm always interested in speeding up perl.

"As a small side note, be aware that providing a block or subroutine to the sort function will automatically slow down its performance as is will no longer be relying on straight C code to perform the sort. Naturally, I rarely feel it's necessary to consider this issue, but it's nice to know"
  • Why is it not straight C code? What is it?
  • Does this apply to any subroutine, or is 'sort' a special case?
  • Also, does the same issue hold true under mod_perl?
  • This reminds me of the rumor i heard that case non-sensitive pattern matching is particularly slow (/foo/i). Any ideas on how i could find out more about perl syntax and speed?

    • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:

    • 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).
