It can. Remember you're checking if that 1 is still 1
on every loop. How long does a file usually stick around
before being deleted?
Update: And of course the file test
itself. Depending on how your disk caching is happening
your results may vary.
My first big project had files being written across Samba
mounts and then -e tests as well. CPU time wasn't much
of factor, but the network could get clogged.
Getting the various perl programs talking directly to
each other was much faster. So my experience might have
nothing to do with your stuff
