It looks to me like the major case where the benchmark straight-out lies (well, where you, the speaker, presumably lie about what it's saying) is that the first snippet is in list context, and the second is in void context. Simply adding my @results = before the initial (in lexical order; final in execution order) map would fix that, and still have it fit on your slide (assuming your slide uses a monospaced font). You could probably even write it on a sepperate line and still have it fit on the slide.

The rest of the changes make the benchmark more useful, perhaps, but they do not unfairly favor one over the other -- the most important type of error to avoid in any benchmark. (The reason, for example, that polls should rotate the options -- there's a significant bias amongst voters for the first option listed on a form.)

    [TCLion]: I am breaking down the line and putting the date in the correct order during output
    [TCLion]: at least that's the plan
    [1nickt]: Corion this looks good, from the pod: "there are 9000+ variations that are detected correctly in the test files (see t/data/* for most of them). If you can think of any that I do not cover, please let me know."
    [TCLion]: some moron put the date like this : Mon Feb 20 09:31:30 2017
    [Corion]: 1nickt: Yes, the module sounds promising indeed
    [1nickt]: "putting the date in correct order" how?
    [Corion]: TCLion: Whee ;)
    [TCLion]: need to put like this : 2017-02-20 09:30:53
    [1nickt]: That's why I asked if you are using DateTime. It has a large number of supporting modules (the author likes the term 'eco-system') so if you are already creating a DateTime obj from your dates, this module would read in the mnoron-formatted 1s seamlessly
    [TCLion]: when I put the date together it looks like : 2017-Feb-24 (month is the problem)
