in thread Simple date and time manipulation

It works fast and is tiny.
I beg to differ. It is both slow and verbose. DateTime is 10 times faster, and Date::Calc is 700 times faster!
use strict; use warnings; use DateTime; use Date::Calc qw (Add_Delta_DHMS); use Benchmark qw(cmpthese); my $dt = DateTime->new( year => 2011, month => 1, day => 1, hour => 0, minute => 0, second => 0, ); my ($year, $month, $day, $hour, $min, $sec) = (2011, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0); cmpthese( -1, { 'DateTime' => sub { $dt->add(hours => 1, minutes => 2, seconds => 3); }, 'Date::Calc' => sub { ($year, $month, $day, $hour, $min, $sec) = Add_Delta_DHMS($year, $month, $day, $hour, $min, $sec, 0, 1, 2 +, 3); }, 'tsk1979' => sub { my $lat = 23.438; my $slon = 68.000; my $elon = 90.000; my $clon = $slon; my $incrlon = 0.01; my $time = time; my ($sec, $min, $hour, $mday, $mon, $year, $wday, $yday, $isdst) + = localtime($time); my $incrtime = 1; my $printmon; my $printyear; while ($clon < $elon) { $printmon = $mon + 1; $printyear = $year + 1900; $clon = $clon + $incrlon; $time = $time + $incrtime; ($sec, $min, $hour, $mday, $mon, $year, $wday, $yday, $isdst) += localtime($time); } }, } ); __END__ $ perl -l | tail -5 Rate tsk1979 DateTime Date::Calc tsk1979 339/s -- -90% -100% DateTime 3319/s 878% -- -100% Date::Calc 893673/s 263192% 26830% -- $
It is a good habit to Benchmark your code before making bold claims about its performance.
No matter how great and destructive your problems may seem now, remember, you've probably only seen the tip of them. [1]

    What? You're going to compare 16 lines of unrelated code (which contains a nasty loop) to a single line function and call it a benchmark victory? The OP was looking for a quick date time increment. His solution contained this and plenty of other code not directly related to the date time increment. If you're going to benchmark you won't get very far comparing apples to oranges.

    By my benchmarking, the OP's "equivalent datetime increment" code is 144 times faster than DateTime and nearly as fast as Date::Calc.

    It's a good habit to check that your Benchmark code is equivalent before making bold claims about your Benchmark results.
