I chose the "19&" version of a magic formula here only because the bitwise and & operator is typically faster than the modulo % operator. BTW, an interesting (non-golf) problem is to find the most efficient magic formula: for that, I expect you'd try to use "fast" operators (such as &, ^, |, >>), while avoiding "slow" ones (such as % and /).

Your criteria probably make sense if you are writing C code. I doubt they make sense when writing in any of the languages you are actually writing in.

In particular, in Perl your fastest formula is going to be the one with the fewest operations. Dispatching a Perl opnode is going to be (I'm guessing) two or three orders of magnitude slower than even something "slow" like a division machine-language instruction.

    [james28909]: cant seem to make it look in linux module path for md5.pm
    [james28909]: no matter how i prepare the paths. oh well. looks like ill just have to start wsl perl from scratch
    [Corion]: james28909: You can get a list of all modules on your Windows Perl via the autobundle command in the cpan shell. But that likely lists many more modules than you actually want. I recommend a clear separation and installing modules on ...
    [Corion]: ... both Perls separately. I use cpanfiles or Makefile.PL for that - listing all modules for an application there allows me to install them via cpanm . or cpan . automatically without any further interaction
