in reply to RE: The Best Infinite Loop
in thread The Best Infinite Loop

I never realized that while() could be used as an infinite loop, so I went and benchmarked it up against for (;;) and I got these results:
Benchmark: timing 20000 iterations of for, while()... for: 45 wallclock secs (43.95 usr + 0.00 sys = 43.95 CPU) @ 45 +5.06/s (n=20000) while(): 43 wallclock secs (43.28 usr + 0.00 sys = 43.28 CPU) @ 46 +2.11/s (n=20000)

Note: Do not be alarmed if it took longer this time than in the above post, I did it on a slower computer.

Sooo..., I guess you were right!!

[james28909]: check if it is a hash or an array ect with ref in one sub.
[james28909]: like all the subs calling get_data get_array get_ect, you could just use get_data. once you send the data to get_data, check if it is a hash or an array ect. and do functions for each, in one sub
[james28909]: that looks like it would be alot more work than just renaming the sub though lol
[Lady_Aleena]: james28909, did you even look at the subs?
[james28909]: yes
[Lady_Aleena]: And you see how the first two are vastly different than the third, right?
