I see only four options for you:
  1. Buy a faster computer
  2. use an array, not a hash (if your data really is numerical & sequenced)
  3. Code it in C
  4. Live with it
Here's some timings on my computer (Linux, Perl 5.8.8, AMD Dual core 4800)
use Time::HiRes qw/time/; my $start = time; my %save; for(0 .. 2000000) { $save{$_}{$_+1}=$_+2; } print "hash: ", time - $start, "\n"; $start = time; my @save; for(0 .. 2000000) { $save[$_]{$_+1}=$_+2; } print "array: ", time - $start, "\n"; #Ouput: #hash: 4.92373299598694 #array: 3.34077191352844

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
