I suspect the redundancy and memory requirements in your one-liner is inefficient and that a while loop would be not only more efficient but more readable. Benchmark in progress ...

Update:After reviewing the original, its not exactly the same, but I think still a fair enough comparision :)

#!/usr/bin/perl -w # About the fairest comparison I could think of at the moment use strict; use Benchmark; my $file = "tst1.txt"; open(OUT, ">$file") or die "Can't open $file for output: $!"; for ("000000".."020000") { print OUT "$_=abc|def|ghi|jkl\n"; print OUT "Ignore this line\n"; } open(FH1, $file) or die "1 Can't open $file: $!"; open(FH2, $file) or die "2 Can't open $file: $!"; timethese(1, { MAPIT=>\&map_it, LOOPIT=>\&loop_it, }); close FH1; close FH2; sub map_it { my %author = map {/^\d{6}$/ ? $_ : [ split (/\|/, $_, 2 ]} map { split( /=/, $_, 2 ) } grep { /^\d{6}=[^|]+\|/ } <FH1>; } sub loop_it { my %author; while (<FH2>) { next unless /^(\d{6})=(.+)\|/; # Hmm, the above should really be: # next unless /^(\d{6})=([^|].*)\|/; # Whoops, forgot to limit the split to 2 elements here # No big deal, results are still similar $author{$1} = [ split(/\|/, $2) ]; } } # interesting different results #Under activestate perl Benchmark: timing 1 iterations of LOOPIT, MAPIT...
