in thread How to check if a variable's value is equal to a member of a list of values

grep { TEST } LIST is semantically equivalent to map { TEST ? $_ : () } LIST

Seems obvious that more logic results in longer runtime.

Don't you think so?

    Yes, I would agree that more logic increases runtime, but from your example, are you saying that grep should be faster? Please explain your example, so I understand you clearly.

    Personally, I have no idea how grep, map, or ~~ all work "under the hood". In your syntax, I see grep and map both iterating over the list, so my guess was they would have performed equally. I was surprised at my results.

      no I'm showing that grep {TEST} is more complex than map {TEST}
