in thread Benchmarking the basic operations
Comparing the speed of lt, gt, ge, le, ne, and eq is just, well, silly. The difference comes down to a fraction of a machine language instruction. The time it takes to dispatch a single Perl opcode dwarfs that like a flea on an aircraft carrier. "
How do you define dispatch and opcode? Apparently I'm not even literate in what constructs to focus on when optimizing, or how to isolate dispatch in a benchmark.
