in thread counting backward

Maybe it's optimized for reversing arrays but not for reversing ranges:

I had to stop the second version because the swapping started to freeze my system:

lanx@nc10-ubuntu:~$ perl -e'for my $i ( 0 .. 1e8 ) { $x*=-1; $x+=$i }; +print "$x\n"' 50000000 lanx@nc10-ubuntu:~$ perl -e'for my $i ( reverse 0 .. 1e8 ) { $x*=-1; $ +x+=$i };print "$x\n"' ^C^C^C lanx@nc10-ubuntu:~$ perl -version This is perl, v5.10.0 built for i486-linux-gnu-thread-multi ...

Reversing ranges was what BUK did, but AnoMonk replied with a reference to a fix for reversing arrays!

Cheers Rolf

    But the post of yours which I replied to explicitly showed @a as an example, not a range. I never claimed ranges were optimised, while you implied that arrays weren't.
