Thought from THE FUTURE: MetaCPAN (the best and now, only, way to look up and/or search for things on CPAN) uses ElasticSearch (written in Java) for text-searching - in other words, use the best tool for the job.

Regarding PDL, I recently cribbed some code in order to add PDL support STL ("Stereolithograpy", a lingua franca format for 3D printing in 2022). When I switched from a Perl loop reading a chunk of bytes then using unpack, to making an ndarray where it sliced the relevant parts of each chunk out and treated those as single-precision data, the data-processing more than doubled in speed. In other words, PDL's data-processing is (not surprisingly) faster than an interpreted language's processing, even using the optimised unpack functionality.

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.
