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

I'm not getting any speed gain with this method, for 'real' image. Not sure, why to expect this gain, if instead of matching for sequence of non-zero bytes we just trying to match for non-zero byte followed by sequence of zeroes? And there's additional work to do: xor-ing, chopping, etc.

Plus, what if object "32" happens to be in 1st column?

$s = join '', map { chr } qw/ 32 0 1 1 0 0 2/; $t = ' ' . $s ^ $s; chop $t; while ( $t =~ m[[^\0]\0*]g ) { printf "%d\t%d\t%d\n", ord( substr $s, $-[0], 1 ), $-[0], $+[0] - +1; }

It looks we have to prepend a zero byte (because, it seems, original eily's solution was strictly for alphabetical strings). Then speed drops below that of "buk3" - loop spends lot of time finding bbox of background. Inserting "next unless $c", leads to, again, the same performance as "buk3".

Well, for now, "buk3"'s speed is "good enough" (amazingly good compared to 'elegant' PDL-only solution), thank you everyone who contributed.

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.
