in thread Subroutine overhead in Perl

I'm sorry: I was probably not clear. The timing for 'java' does not include the 'javac' step, but the perl timing includes the conversion of source to code for the interpreter. I was just suggesting that the 'time' commands were not timing the same things.

    That is what I understood, so I guess I was the one who wasn't clear. I'm saying he *is* timing the same thing: The time it takes to run the program. Using javac is not part of running a Java program whereas parsing the Perl sources is part of running a Perl program. Perl and Java do things differently, but that doesn't mean he's not timing the same thing. (If they did things the same way, what would be the point of timing them?)

[Corion]: thezip: Yeah - we have "CAP", but that means "Change Ablauf Plan" (Change Sequence Plan). Likely there is a true ITIL name for this too.
[Corion]: While I'm not really a fan of ITIL, it certainly is better than nothing and it at least provides a common vocabulary, so if you have ITIL somewhere at your disposal, it might be worth a look
[Corion]: Hmm - that should be somewhere in the "Release Deployment Plan", but I don't find a good English link (nor a good German one ;) )
[thezip]: My project manager is asking "Why do we need this?" Ahem...
