( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Inspired by previous discussions on using arrays with inside-out objects (inside-out objects using arrays?), I modified Object::InsideOut to allow the use of arrays (as well as hashes) for storing object field data.

I tested the performance of array-based Object::InsideOut objects on several platforms, and was impressed with the results: I got anywhere from 20% (Solaris) to 40% (ActivePerl) performance improvement for basic fetch and store operations over blessed-hash objects!

I hope this may prove to be sufficient incentive for some of my fellow monks to give Object::InsideOut a try. This lastest version is available on CPAN. Enjoy.

Update:
In addition to speed improvements, using arrays consumes less memory because Perl doesn't have to store hash keys for the object field data.

The programming effort for using hash-based inside-out objects and array-based inside-out objects is the same: You just use '@' instead of '%' when declaring your object data fields.

Update 2:
I just uploaded v1.01.00 which adds support for object serialization.

See New Module Announcement: Object::InsideOut for more discussion on Object::InsideOut.

Remember: There's always one more bug.

  • 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).
