in reply to Efficient walk/iterate along a string

substr isn't exactly cheap - depending on what you really want to do with a single character, a regular expression moving across the string might (or might not) be faster. See perlop and perlre for /gc.

while ($protein =~ /\G(.)/gc) { print $1; ... };
