in thread pipe fork win32

For performance reasons, Perl's buffer was changed from 4K to 8K in 5.14.0. It was also made configurable at build time at the same time.

    Yes

    Unfortunately, it means it is now sub-optimal for all purposes. Too small for best throughput on block IO devices, and too big for streaming and communications.


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    RIP Neil Armstrong
