The timing comes out to 10 minutes for the insertion and 9.6 minutes for iteration of the million keys.

use Tie::SubstrHash; tie %hash, 'Tie::SubstrHash', 7, 1, 1_000_000; print time; $hash{ pack 'A7', $_ } = ' ' for 1 .. 1_000_000; print time; 1069489311 1069489911 $n = 0; print time; $n += defined $hash{ pack 'A7', $_ } for 1 .. 1_000_000; print time, $ +/, $n; 1069490448 1069491023 1000000

I think that it may be possible to improve this a little by updating the module. It uses local several places where my would probably be quicker. Though, I suspect that the main performance hit is the cost of tie rather than the implementation. Part of my reasoning for liking the mechanism I described was that it was simple enough in it's implementation that it could be coded directly avoiding the need for tie.

I also think that it would be possible to improve the user interface by having the module perform any padding required rather than the caller,
