in reply to Idiomatic optimizations

when printing, comma (,) is faster than concatenate (.). print $foo, ' -- ', $bar, $/; is faster than print $foo . ' -- ' . $bar . $/;

    One caveat though: When printing a list, each element is evaluated in LIST context whereas concatenated expressions are evaluated in SCALAR context....
    % perl -le 'print "Today: ". localtime()' Today: Tue Apr 30 01:35:48 2002 % perl -le 'print "Today: ", localtime()' Today: 5435130310221191
