is used for control flow here -- there's a deep recursion going on, and once a solution is found, all of these recursive subs can be terminated at once. That's what die
And warn doesn't -- it just prints a warning, and doesn't abort the current routines. So it makes the solver search for more solutions even after a solution is found. Which is why it takes much longer.
A possible (still hacky) approach is to do the BLOCK form of eval to catch the exception, print the result and then start the recursion anew with the next Sudoku.
