in reply to fast string parser: regex versus substr

Thanks all,

I came up with.

sub dopack { foreach my $i ( 0..$#data ) { my $line=$data[$i]; my ($jcpu,$j,$s)=(unpack('@2A16A40A232A16', $line))[0,1,3]; warn "$jcpu $j $s"; # ..store the values in a hash, but that is not important here } }
And it won the benchmark competition :-)

I never really understood pack and unpack, but it am getting to like it.

    my ($jcpu,$j,$s)=(unpack('@2A16A40A232A16', $line))[0,1,3];
    I think you'd be better off using the "x" template to ignore the third field (with index 2):
    my ($jcpu,$j,$s)= unpack('@2A16A40x232A16', $line);

    You can replace the leading '@2' with 'x2'', too. Or, just the reverse, replace the 'x232' with '@290'. I don't think it'll make much difference speedwise.
