in thread comparing arrays

The only reason that this is slower than the faq answer, or the solution i just posted, is that you are using map in void context. This is an efficiency no-no.

update: demerphq is also correct, removing the lexical context indeed contributes some of the performance increase. Since this is a one-time performance penalty, its effect will be greater relative to smaller arrays.

    And also because the map he used has a lexically scoped block but the for loop that you used does not. Handling the scope has an overhead associated with it im pretty sure.

    just my $0.02

    Writing a good benchmark isnt as easy as it might look.
