Note that the code you've got is already fairly efficient. Consider the following:
my $n = 0x80061861; for (1..10_000_000) { my $top14 = ( $n & 0xfffc0000 ) >> 18; my $nxt6 = ( $n & 0x0003f000 ) >> 12; my $mid6 = ( $n & 0x00000fc0 ) >> 6; my $bot6 = ( $n & 0x0000003f ); # or replace the four lines above with: #my ($top14, $nxt6, $mid6, $bot6) = (1,1,1,1); }
Running as-is on my system takes 3.1s; using just the last line (which represents a baseline of creating, setting and freeing those four lexical vars), takes 1.9s. So any savings you make are likely to be less than that.
