Rewrite Program Using Arraysby perl.j (Pilgrim)
|on Mar 25, 2012 at 15:29 UTC||Need Help??|
perl.j has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
So I have this text file:
And I am reading and counting the names with this program:
But now I want to change it up. I am going to be running this program in a huge repeating loop, so speed counts. So I want to make this faster.
I was thinking about making one big @globalarray and a @temparray and pushing from the @temparray into the global one. I am thinking this will make it a very tiny bit faster, but anything will do at this point. So how can I change my program as described, but still have the same output?
