Good catch++.

I'm not sure I agree with you about the final join though. The OP just needs to keep the 1 to 5 "few k" chunks somewhere until he has the set. At that point he is going to transmit them.

He can just as easily write them as 5 seperate strings as 1, and avoid the need to concatenate them?

I think the most efficient way would be to pre-extend to the array to max_chanks, and then pass and store references to the chunks avoiding any need to copy or concatenate. In isolation from the code that generates the chunks, passes them to the buffering code, and finally transmits them, the whole thing is an academic exercise.

Even without my gaff, the benchmark was at best iffy.

  • 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).
