I don't know if there is any real optimization you can do for solid-state devices, or if those optimizations will even make for a significant speed advantage.

Did you ever study data structures? Have you compared the speed of doing a linear search with a binary tree search? There are optimisations you can do for solid-state devices, it's just like RAM. That's why people spend time trying to work out what the best data structure is. Otherwise, we'd just dump everything in a list and grep for the results we want. As for hardware-specific optimisations, once there is enough hardware around, if people find that it is going too slow, somebody will find a way to do it faster.

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