in reply to Efficiency of map vs. more verbose basic/fundamental code

I can see why benchmarking such a simple expression is trivial. I suppose there are several lessons learned here.

  • Thanks to BrowserUk it is clear that in this particular situation the memory conservative:

    print "$_ : $h{ $_ }\n" for sort keys %h;

    is the best choice taking both efficiency and elegance into consideration.

  • I learned how to benchmark my subroutines which will hopefully be of service as I learn to write more complex code

  • And possibly most importantly I need to update my study materials!!!

Thanks again everybody!
