None.

I dare say the ex-bang-bang approach is faster, but then I would be rightly accused of premature optimisation. The grep approach, while slower (but at a cost approaching zero) is more easily figured out from first principles.

The effect of x!! is not easily discerned; one has to write a harness to explore its behaviour. Either because one has encountered a similar idiom in a different language and wants to see if Perl matches expectations based on prior experience, or else they have not the faintest idea of what it does (and once one sees what it does, can they determine why?)

So in summary, there is a difference. One is tricksy, the other is merely degenerate.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
