You need to run the following little test to catch any errors with negative x and y values before firing off any benchmarks:

# tgol.t - Simple blinker test of Conway Game of Life Organism class use strict; use warnings; use Organism; use Test::More; my $nblinks = 5; my $ntests = ( $nblinks + 1 ) * 3; plan tests => $ntests; sub test_one { my $org = shift; # Organism handle my $desc = shift; # Test description my $expected = shift; # Array ref of (sorted) expected cells my $nexpected = @{$expected}; my $ncells = $org->count(); my @cells = $org->get_live_cells(); cmp_ok( $ncells, '==', $nexpected, "$desc cell count ($ncells)" ); cmp_ok( scalar(@cells), '==', $nexpected, "$desc cell array count" +); is_deeply( \@cells, $expected, "$desc cell array" ); } # Blinker pattern my @blinker1 = ( [ -101, -100 ], [ -100, -100 ], [ -99, -100 ], [ -101, 100 ], [ -100, 100 ], [ -99, 100 ], [ -1, 0 ], [ 0, 0 ], [ 1, 0 ], [ 99, -100 ], [ 100, -100 ], [ 101, -100 ], [ 99, 100 ], [ 100, 100 ], [ 101, 100 ], ); my @blinker2 = ( [ -100, -99 ], [ -100, -100 ], [ -100, -101 ], [ -100, 99 ], [ -100, 100 ], [ -100, 101 ], [ 0, -1 ], [ 0, 0 ], [ 0, 1 ], [ 100, -99 ], [ 100, -100 ], [ 100, -101 ], [ 100, 99 ], [ 100, 100 ], [ 100, 101 ], ); my @sblinker1 = sort { $a->[0] <=> $b->[0] || $a->[1] <=> $b->[1] } @b +linker1; my @sblinker2 = sort { $a->[0] <=> $b->[0] || $a->[1] <=> $b->[1] } @b +linker2; # Initialization my $org = Organism->new(); $org->insert_cells(@blinker1); test_one( $org, "initial", \@sblinker1 ); # Pattern should just blink back and forth for my $i ( 1 .. $nblinks ) { $org->tick(); test_one( $org, "blinker $i", $i % 2 ? \@sblinker2 : \@sblinker1 ); }
with the command line:
prove tgol.t
Unfortunately, your latest effort fails this test on my machine as shown below:
# Failed test 'initial cell count (11)' # at tgol.t line 17. # got: 11 # expected: 15 # Failed test 'initial cell array count' # at tgol.t line 18. # got: 11 # expected: 15 # Failed test 'initial cell array' # at tgol.t line 19. # Structures begin differing at: # $got->[0][0] = '-281474976710655' # $expected->[0][0] = '-101' # Failed test 'blinker 1 cell count (10)' # at tgol.t line 17. # got: 10 # expected: 15 # Failed test 'blinker 1 cell array count' # at tgol.t line 18. # got: 10 # expected: 15 # Failed test 'blinker 1 cell array' # at tgol.t line 19. # Structures begin differing at: # $got->[0][0] = '-281474976710655' # $expected->[0][0] = '-100' # Failed test 'blinker 2 cell count (11)' # at tgol.t line 17. # got: 11 # expected: 15 # Failed test 'blinker 2 cell array count' # at tgol.t line 18. # got: 11 # expected: 15 # Failed test 'blinker 2 cell array' # at tgol.t line 19. # Structures begin differing at: # $got->[0][0] = '-281474976710655' # $expected->[0][0] = '-101' # Failed test 'blinker 3 cell count (9)' # at tgol.t line 17. # got: 9 # expected: 15 # Failed test 'blinker 3 cell array count' # at tgol.t line 18. # got: 9 # expected: 15 # Failed test 'blinker 3 cell array' # at tgol.t line 19. # Structures begin differing at: # $got->[0][1] = '99' # $expected->[0][1] = '-101' # Failed test 'blinker 4 cell count (9)' # at tgol.t line 17. # got: 9 # expected: 15 # Failed test 'blinker 4 cell array count' # at tgol.t line 18. # got: 9 # expected: 15 # Failed test 'blinker 4 cell array' # at tgol.t line 19. # Structures begin differing at: # $got->[0][1] = '100' # $expected->[0][1] = '-100' # Failed test 'blinker 5 cell count (8)' # at tgol.t line 17. # got: 8 # expected: 15 # Failed test 'blinker 5 cell array count' # at tgol.t line 18. # got: 8 # expected: 15 # Failed test 'blinker 5 cell array' # at tgol.t line 19. # Structures begin differing at: # $got->[0][1] = '99' # $expected->[0][1] = '-101' # Looks like you failed 18 tests of 18.

I left this tgol.t test program out of the root node because it was already way too long ... then forgot about it. Sorry 'bout that. Update: I've now remedied my oversight by adding the tgol.t test program above to the root node.
