  • smartmatch is implemented in C
  • grep doesn't stop after matching.

    Unfortunately all the use cases of smartmatch are hard to remember.

    For repeated lookups a prepared hash scales certainly better.

    You're free to check this with benchmarks or search for older discussions.

    I hoped smartmatch could at least handle the stringification limitation of hashes, but nope:

    DB<141> $h1={} => {} DB<142> $h1 ~~ [$h1] => "" DB<143> 5 ~~ [5] => 1
