( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Small oversight - your benchmark with $unused never makes an assignment from @_. When I fixed the typo and reran it, (undef, $x)= @_ was marginally faster than ($unused, $x) = @_ though not by an amount I consider significant (3%). -- Tested on Perl 5.10.0, system Perl for Debian Lenny, 32bit.

use Benchmark qw(cmpthese); my $a1='a'x1e6; my $b1=12345; cmpthese -1,{ a=>q[ sub{ my( undef, $x) = @_ }->( $a1, $b1 ) ], b=>q[ sub{ my $x = $_[1] }->( $a1, $b1 ) ], c=>q[ sub{ my( $unused, $x ) = @_;}->( $a1, $b1 ) ], }; # Output Rate c a b c 649176/s -- -3% -33% a 670690/s 3% -- -30% b 963764/s 48% 44% --

Update added Perl version and platform; clarified ranking of results.

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.
