Inline::C allows a pretty fast implementation...

use 5.010; use Benchmark qw(cmpthese); use Inline C => <<'INLINE'; int count1 (SV* name1, ...) { Inline_Stack_Vars; return Inline_Stack_Items; } INLINE sub count2 { scalar @_ } sub count3 { 0 + @_ } sub count4 { my $_ = @_ } sub count5 (\@) { scalar @{$_[0]} } my @array = 'a'..'z'; my %implementations = ( count1 => sub { count1(@array) }, count2 => sub { count2(@array) }, count3 => sub { count3(@array) }, count4 => sub { count4(@array) }, count5 => sub { count5(@array) }, ); for my $i (sort keys %implementations) { say $i, ": ", $implementations{$i}->(); } cmpthese(250_000, \%implementations);

XS may well allow faster still.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
