Looks like eval runs faster...
Rate as usual with do
as usual 63091/s -- -29%
with do 88496/s 40% --
Rate with eval as usual
with eval 59773/s -- -9%
as usual 65359/s 9% --
No, it doesn't look like that.
In one run "with do" was 40% faster than "as usual", while in the second run, "with eval" iswas 9% slower than "as usual".
The "Rate" shows you how many times the specific routine could be run per time unit, so in this case, runs per second.
What makes you think, that the eval-solution runs faster? ;)
BTW, you can do comparisons with more than two subroutines. So you can do one run and compare all three (or more) routines.

Use one parenthesis: (Like this: :)

Use angle/square brackets instead of parentheses
Use C-style commenting to set the smiley off from the closing parenthesis
Make the smiley a dunce: (:>
