rjbioinf has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have an array stored using 'nstore' method. The resulting dump file is 90Mb (40 million elements). When I load it back into Perl using 'retrieve' it takes > 5 minutes. I have never really looked into the speed of this operation much before as I have never been left waiting as it were. I wonder if you would expect the retrieve process to take this long or is something amiss? I am running a new 4gig ram macbook pro with Lion so it should be pretty quick i would have thought?
