Allternative method (aka TIMTOWTDI)

in reply to Removing line from a string

This one puts the lines in an array and removes the first array element - this is probably not the best method, but would be interesting to see how it compares with the regex methods above.

my @lines = split /^/, $records; shift @lines; # remove first line print @lines; # print the rest
or use the range operator:
my @lines = split /^/, $records; print @lines[1..$#lines]; # print line 1 onwards removing line 0
A Monk aims to give answers to those who have none, and to learn from those who know more.

    It turns out that choroba's regex method performs the best for larger data sets and the index method for small sets.

    #!/usr/bin/perl use Benchmark qw ( :hireswallclock cmpthese timethese ); use strict; use warnings; # medium data set our $records = "Key\n" . join ( "\n", 1..200000 ); # small data set # our $records = 'Key # 1 # 2 # 3 # 4 # 5'; sub choroba { local $records = $records; $records =~ s/^ # beginning of the string .* # whatever except newline \n # newline //x; #print $records, "\nchoroba\n"; } sub si_lence { local $records = $records; $records = substr($records, 4); #print $records, "\nsi_lence\n"; } sub space_monk { local $records = $records; my @lines = split /^/, $records; shift @lines; # remove first line #print @lines; #print "\nspace_monk\n"; } my $results = timethese( -5, { 'choroba' => 'choroba', 'si_lence' => 'si_lence', 'space_monk' => 'space_monk', } ); cmpthese($results); __END__ **** Results with small data set Benchmark: running choroba, si_lence, space_monk for at least 5 CPU se +conds... choroba: 6.08126 wallclock secs ( 6.09 usr + 0.00 sys = 6.09 CPU) + @ 958995.90/s (n=5843162) si_lence: 6.28688 wallclock secs ( 6.28 usr + 0.00 sys = 6.28 CPU) + @ 1221333.07/s (n=7671193) space_monk: 5.64815 wallclock secs ( 5.64 usr + 0.00 sys = 5.64 CPU) + @ 324712.99/s (n=1831706) Rate space_monk choroba si_lence space_monk 324713/s -- -66% -73% choroba 958996/s 195% -- -21% si_lence 1221333/s 276% 27% -- **** Results with medium data set Benchmark: running choroba, si_lence, space_monk for at least 5 CPU se +conds... choroba: 5.05257 wallclock secs ( 2.20 usr + 2.83 sys = 5.03 CPU) + @ 1639.44/s (n=8248) si_lence: 5.87241 wallclock secs ( 3.84 usr + 2.02 sys = 5.86 CPU) + @ 862.29/s (n=5053) space_monk: 5.16132 wallclock secs ( 5.03 usr + 0.09 sys = 5.12 CPU) + @ 3.51/s (n=18) Rate space_monk si_lence choroba space_monk 3.51/s -- -100% -100% si_lence 862/s 24442% -- -47% choroba 1639/s 46560% 90% --
