in reply to perl 5.8.0 perlio

My early benchmarks show it to be 10x faster than a simple buffer created with tie and 20x faster than String::IO!

Sounds interesting.. I'd appreciate it if you could post your benchmark code.

I haven't yet looked at perl 5.8.0 but looking at comments made by other developers the improvements are quite exciting. For one, I believe that Perl's use of it's own IO subsystem in place of that provided by the underlying OS will make Perl even more platform independant.

    Well, yet again I've posted as the AM by mistake, and cannot edit my node:( So, one correction, everywhere I wrote String::IO, that should of course be IO::String.

    Now, here's the benchmarks...
