Yes, the -s example is a simple example, but doesn't necessarily highlight the ST. The point of the section is to talk about the expense of the comparison function, and one possible solution. I chose -s, because it's easy to talk about, and the ST, because it's the most straightforward general solution. Certainly, in specialized cases, a simple array cache or hash cache or GRT might be better.

In a tutorial, I'm constantly weighing how much or how little to say to accomplish some level of understanding for the tasks at hand. It's trickier than it looks, as anyone who has written training materials can confirm.

Title:
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.
