Preach it, man, preach it! I'd go further - performance matters much less than 1% of the time in my experience. Maybe 0.1% would be more accurate. Even taking an edge case like Google, the performance sensitive stuff they do can't be more than a few percent of their total effort. Their best idea - map-reduce on a gigantic cluster - seems to me to be mostly a great way to speedup slow code with no programmer effort!

It's a damn shame though - optimization is such fun. HTML::Template::JIT was a blast to write, but it's worth noting that despite being the absolute hands-down fastest templating engine available it's virtually never been used. I couldn't even justify using it in a mass-mailer with very tight performance requirements, templating just wasn't the bottleneck (MIME::Lite was).

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.
