It could be deeper Perl, the best guys on this website know what the Perl Interpreter gets up to under the hood. Maybe they look at the Perl source code for this, maybe they just know C, I dont know. Try and refactor your code for speed, its a good way to learn the 'best ways'

    This is a real "pearl" of wisdom-- to understand Perl, the language, deeply, it is *indispensable* that you have at least a basic understanding of how perl, the C program, works. They are very intimately related. perlguts can be helpful for this, but you can learn a heck of a lot by using the output of some of the B modules, or by building a debugging perl and running -Dt on very simple programs. I would also recommend PerlGuts Illustrated by Gisle Aas. It is not complete but it is very helpful.
