Here's another thought: how about not calling your printto() and assign() methods quite so often?

There's overhead in calling the subs in the first place. Doubly so for method calls. Cut down on the number of calls.

Examine your algorithms to determine why it's necessary to call FTS::printto()/assign() an order of magnitude more times than anything else in your program. Can the work be put off, done in batches? Can you leave yourself helpful references in the data so that less looping/searching is necessary? (Fewer arrays, more hashes). Is there an opportunity to memoize functions somewhere? Can you prepare the data better during FTS::parsefile (or new_fromfile or something) so that it's more easily dealt with later on?

Beware of premature optimization

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.
