in thread push, assign or split a file?

The reason that I put the Data::Dumper calls in was to make sure that the ARRAY was really being put into memory and not being delayed. If all of the tests had the Data::Dumper code, it should not affect the outcome.

I have now made it so that all the tests don't use Data::Dumper.

    Indeed it will; if you want to measure IO for reading, don't add IO for writing. IO is too non-deterministic at this level to benchmark accurately and appropriately. (That's even without Benchmark's flaws.)

      chromatic there was no output. The Data::Dumper output was just being put in a scalar.

        Good point; I missed that.
