Just checking through my nodes. Found an answer to this some time ago, and thought I would post a response for anyone who stumbles into the same situation:

The bottleneck would appear to be the TIF image compression. If you disable compression in the following manner:

$success = $img->write(filename=>$path, compression=>'None');
the program screams. Of course, as the purpose of my script is to save space, this isn't optimal ;)

The compression functionality may work faster on a *nix platform, which is unfortunately not an option for what I'm doing here. As such I have done no testing to either prove or disprove this. So you may wish to take this with a grain (if not a pound) of salt if attempting this on *nix.

Good luck!

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
