1. Why does the qr// operator accept the /o midifier?

So that you can create a 'static' compiled regex object that can be interpolated in to more complex patterns subsquently in the program.

2. If you combine one or more parts defined with qr// in a regex with some non-precompiled stuff, do you still get the advantage of precompilation?

The discussion on p194 of Camel 3rd Ed. states that you can 'chain' qr// operaters into one pattern to prevent re-compilation, so the answer would appear to be 'no'.

3. If there was a non-compiled var reference in the above m//, do I still get any benefit from pre-compiling the other parts?

No; again, according to the reference above, the pattern would be re-compiled.

4. What happens if I add a /o modifier to the m// above?

You'd get a once-only compilation of the pattern.

5. If one or more of the per-compiled parts (and/or the non-precompiled parts) contains capture brackets, was there any benefit (in performance terms) from pre-compiling some parts?

I doubt that the presence or absence of capture brackets makes much difference to whether or not precompilation provides any benefit.

  • 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).
