BTW: There is a problem with your substrwise test.
The first time through, $mask is undefined, so you set up @mask and set smask.
But on the second and subsequent times through, $mask is defined, so the non-state variable: @mask is left empty, so you don't do any actual work.
That probably explains the surprising apparent efficiency of substrwise in the figures McA posted.
