Re^5: IO::Uncompress::Gunzip to scalar takes hours (on windows)by BrowserUk (Pope)

I've updated the original post to have profile data between a good run and bad run - maybe that will help.
Hm. That tells us that the vast majority of the time (98%+) in the slow version is spent in Compress::Raw::Zlib::inflateStream::inflate
Which doesn't make a whole lot of sense given that they are inflating the same data from the same place in both cases.
A line profile might shed more light; but it seems doubtful given the time is spent doing what is effectively input; but the difference in the code is the output target.
Again, I urge you to obtain the page fault stats.
