in thread RFC CGI.pm refactoring

And even then, with this test, while it's fair in how fast it accesses, the real concern would be the speed in breaking down the query string. I propose a better test would be :
use Benchmark; use CGI qw/:cgi /; use CGI::Simple; $ENV{'QUERY_STRING'} = 'foo=bar&baz=boo'; timethese(250000, {'CGI' => '$q = new CGI; $q->param("baz")', 'Simple' => '$s = new CGI::Simple; $s->param( +"baz")'});

It's not what you know, but knowing how to find it if you don't know that's important

    The qw/:cgi/ part is wrong as noted above but as you note there are a number of factors to CGI speed. Have a look at CGI::Simple vs CGI.pm - Is twice as fast good enough? for a much more thorough analysis.

[choroba]: yeah, sounds like one of the strings is not flagged as UTF-8
[choroba]: which usually means its input wasn't handled correctly
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, I think that would be the good solution
[LanX]: I suspect the first string which comes from the DB ...
[LanX]: ... but this part is already in production for a year now
[Corion]: LanX: The "good" approach here would be to use the appropriate DBI parameters to make the driver decode strings properly. But that will have a ripple-on effect of messing up all the places where manual decoding happens ;)
[LanX]: which means albeit being broken UTF8 it'll be handled correctly
[LanX]: and the problem only occurs since we changed the emails to base64
[LanX]: my main problem will be to cnvince my colleagues that our productive code is broken oO ... so in the end I will just make a workaround :-/
LanX hates UTF8 for causing knots in his brain and stomach
