Yep, and here's the benchmarks to prove it. (I just felt like learning the benchmark module.)
use strict; use warnings; use Benchmark qw(:all); #banging on the keyboard my $target_string = 'al;nsdfj;oasmfdio;asdfoasdjfm;mioasfdsjdo;fijso;a +dfjmio;sadjfmos;adfmjosia;mdfjiosad'; Benchmark::cmpthese ( 1000000, { 'substituteStar' => sub { $_ = $target_string; s/[abc]*//g; } , 'substituteNoStar' => sub { $_ = $target_string; s/[abc]//g; } , 'substitutePlus' => sub { $_ = $target_string; s/[abc]+//g; } , 'trAbc' => sub { $_ = $target_string; tr/abc//d; } } )

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.
