If it would make all function calls slower, then I agree with you that it wouldn't be worth it.

3 times slower...

sub withNames{ local %_ = @_; ++$_{$_} for keys %_; };; sub sansNames{ ++$_ for @_; };; cmpthese -1,{a=>q[ withNames( 1 .. $_*2 ) for 1..5 ], b=>q[ sansNames( + 1..$_ ) for 1 .. 5 ] };; Rate a b a 32135/s -- -75% b 127549/s 297% --
hash could be built when first used... Would that not be technically feasible?

Feasible, yes.

A good idea? Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me.

And all to save you adding local %_ = @_; where you want it. Worth the effort? Absolutely not.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    [LanX]: hm just read an article on heise.de claiming that RPerl is 250 times faster. ... it's that even possible?
    [marto]: under certain circumstances perhaps
    [RonW]: as I understand it, RPerl "compiles" a subset of Perl to C, so I would expect the final executable to run a lot faster
    [RonW]: Is there an English language version of the site?
    [LanX]: but Afaik Perl is on average about 10-20 times slower than C
    [LanX]: no
