As I recall, the default glob is unnecessarily slow on Win32 because it does stat a lot more than it needs to. And stat is unnecessarily slow on Win32 because it does some expensive things in order to fill in bits that are rarely used. If doing glob to a remote network share (at least), the slow-down can be quite dramatic (orders of magnitude).

I had an idea for using something like an environment variable to allow skipping the expensive parts of stat but I don't have it "swapped in" at the moment. But the over-use of stat by the default glob should just be fixed.

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.
