in reply to Assining data to an array is slow..

You should also make sure that the data actually fit in memory, or at least physical memory. perl -e '@a=(1)x2E6;sleep();' takes 48 Mb on perl5.6, and I recall it was nearly twice as much in perl5.0. And that's without any data.

So the actual allocation of the data takes time as well.
