Well, I think if you can avoid calling require over and over again, you should. Any require is at least a lookup in %INC each time you execute it.

use Benchmark qw(:hireswallclock timethese); timethese( 1000000,{ one => sub { require Benchmark }, two => sub { require Benchmark; require Benchmark }, }); __END__ $ perl 1 Benchmark: timing 1000000 iterations of one, two... one: 2.43888 wallclock secs ( 1.70 usr + 0.00 sys = 1.70 CPU) @ 588 +235.29/s (n=1000000) two: 5.11982 wallclock secs ( 2.77 usr + 0.00 sys = 2.77 CPU) @ 361 +010.83/s (n=1000000)

Also, for some reason your list flattening with map() does not work. Not sure whether this is a bug in Perl, or a conceptual problem with using map() and $_. Observe:

use Encode qw(_utf8_on); $a = [['']]; foreach (@$a) { _utf8_on($_) foreach @$_ } # my way print utf8::is_utf8( $a->[0][0] ),$/; $a = [['']]; _utf8_on( $_ ) for map @$_, @{$a}; # Aristotle's way print utf8::is_utf8( $a->[0][0] ),$/; __END__ 1
which should show two 1's instead of 1.

But also from a performance point of view, the extra list flattening with map() is not very efficient:

use Encode qw(_utf8_on); use Benchmark qw(:hireswallclock timethese); push @$a,[(0) x 10] foreach 1..10; timethese( 10000,{ liz => sub { foreach (@{$a}) { _utf8_on( $_ ) foreach @{$_}; } }, Aristotle => sub { _utf8_on( $_ ) for map @$_, @{$a}; }, }); __END__ Benchmark: timing 10000 iterations of Aristotle, liz... Aristotle: 4.37344 wallclock secs ( 3.73 usr + 0.00 sys = 3.73 CPU) @ + 2680.97/s (n=10000) liz: 4.06957 wallclock secs ( 2.73 usr + 0.00 sys = 2.73 CPU) @ 3663. +00/s (n=10000)

Liz

Update:
The way Aristotle proposed doesn't work because map() creates a copy of the elements, on which the UTF-8 flag is set and then discarded. See $_ and list flattening with map() for more info.
