Thank you for your answer. I have another problem. I'm trying to find the data size which causes the algorithm to take at least 15 minutes. I do the following:
open (DATASET_RANDOM_INTEGER, '<DATASET_RANDOM_INTEGER.dat'); @numbers = <DATASET_RANDOM_INTEGER>; close (DATASET_RANDOM_INTEGER); #MEASURE THE TIME DURING WHICH THE ALGORITHM IS PERFORMED #START $start = Benchmark->new; #RUN THE ALGORITHM @sorted_numbers = sort { $a <=> $b } @numbers; #FINISH $end = Benchmark->new; $diff = timediff( $end, $start );
However, it's too time consuming since for example when I increase the input size to 100 million, I couldn't foresee that how long it will take to finish (As I write these message, it has been running for two hours). What is the way of accelerating the execution of my code so that it uses more CPU at a time unit?
