in reply to CPU cycles DO NOT MATTER!

The point you missed is that most of the time, this benchmarking exercises are just plain fun. People like doing it because you end up learning several things about how Perl and perl works.

Yes, they are useless for their result in the sense of the program in itself, but they are far from useless for what you learn by playing with them.
