Was your point trying to prove chromatics point? Because IMO, all your benchmark shows is that having to do an atoi takes time. Because in both tests, the left hand side of the operator is the outcome of a module operation, the %. And that's numeric.

Here's a different benchmark. One that used both numbers and string, and both == and eq. You will see that the fastest cases are when no conversions needs to take place. Conclusion: use eq when comparing strings, and == when comparing numbers if speed is your main motivation.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Benchmark qw /cmpthese/; our ($a, $b, $c, $d); cmpthese -10 => { '==-num' => '$::a = 0; for my $i (0 .. 1000000) { $::a ++ if $i == 100; }', 'eq-num' => '$::b = 0; for my $i (0 .. 1000000) { $::b ++ if $i eq "100"; }', '==-str' => '$::c = 0; for my $i ("0" .. "1000000") { $::c ++ if $i == 100; }', 'eq-str' => '$::d = 0; for my $i (0 .. "1000000") { $::d ++ if $i eq "100"; }', }; print "[$a] [$b] [$c] [$d]\n"; __END__ Benchmark: running ==-num, ==-str, eq-num, eq-str, each for at least 1 +0 CPU seconds... ==-num: 10 wallclock secs (10.02 usr + 0.00 sys = 10.02 CPU) @ 4 +.19/s (n=42) ==-str: 10 wallclock secs (10.25 usr + 0.01 sys = 10.26 CPU) @ 1 +.75/s (n=18) eq-num: 10 wallclock secs (10.06 usr + 0.01 sys = 10.07 CPU) @ 2 +.38/s (n=24) eq-str: 10 wallclock secs (10.28 usr + 0.00 sys = 10.28 CPU) @ 2 +.43/s (n=25) Rate ==-str eq-num eq-str ==-num ==-str 1.75/s -- -26% -28% -58% eq-num 2.38/s 36% -- -2% -43% eq-str 2.43/s 39% 2% -- -42% ==-num 4.19/s 139% 76% 72% -- [1] [1] [1] [1]

  • 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:

  • 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).
