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

The timing comes out to 10 minutes for the insertion and 9.6 minutes for iteration of the million keys.

use Tie::SubstrHash; tie %hash, 'Tie::SubstrHash', 7, 1, 1_000_000; print time; $hash{ pack 'A7', $_ } = ' ' for 1 .. 1_000_000; print time; 1069489311 1069489911 $n = 0; print time; $n += defined $hash{ pack 'A7', $_ } for 1 .. 1_000_000; print time, $ +/, $n; 1069490448 1069491023 1000000

I think that it may be possible to improve this a little by updating the module. It uses local several places where my would probably be quicker. Though, I suspect that the main performance hit is the cost of tie rather than the implementation. Part of my reasoning for liking the mechanism I described was that it was simple enough in it's implementation that it could be coded directly avoiding the need for tie.

I also think that it would be possible to improve the user interface by having the module perform any padding required rather than the caller,

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.
