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

G'day cavac,

"Your solution is probably a lot faster, ..."

I've always found for to be faster than map so I benchmarked. I ran the following with: 0 .. 5 (from the two nodes on which you commented); 0 .. 40 (the OP's original range); and, 0 .. 5000 (just to see if a large range made any significant different).

#!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; use Benchmark 'cmpthese'; cmpthese 0 => { with_for => \&with_for, with_map => \&with_map, }; sub with_for { my @f; push @f, [$_+2, $_+1] for 0 .. 5; } sub with_map { my @f = map [$_+2, $_+1], 0 .. 5; }

I ran each three times; there was little difference in the results; I've just posted the middle results below.

# 0 .. 5 Rate with_map with_for with_map 602818/s -- -23% with_for 780657/s 30% -- # 0 .. 40 Rate with_map with_for with_map 92655/s -- -23% with_for 120756/s 30% -- # 0 .. 5000 Rate with_map with_for with_map 745/s -- -23% with_for 968/s 30% --

The smallest difference was -21% vs. 27%; the largest was -25% vs. 33%. As the range was increased, all values tended towards -23% vs. 30% (the middle values for all runs).

In this instance, for is faster than map (i.e. what I've always found in the past).

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.
