in reply to Massive regexp search and replace

One problem you have is that you're recompiling the regexes over and over again. Better to cache them. I'd do something like:
# Preprocessing phase. my @subs = map {my($r, $s) = split /\t/; [qr/$r/, $s]} @Patts; # Real stuff. open(my $in, "<", "...") or die "..."; open(my $out, ">", "...") or die "..."; while (<$in>) { s/$_[0]/$_[1]/g for @subs; # No need for /ee, is there? print $out $_; } close $out or die "...";
