in thread Much slower DBI on RHEL6

Perl 5.10 IIRC was one of the less optimised Perl versions. I think some benchmarks put it 20-50% slower than 5.8. 5.12 and 5.14 improved the speed much. (Sorry, no sources to back this up at this time.)

    That's exactly right. Perl 5.10.0 accidentally disabled a list assignment optimization. Perl 5.10.1 re-enabled that optimization and a lot of functions which perform list assignment from @_ run faster under 5.10.1 than they did with 5.10.0.

      Hm; I was under the impression that the 5.10.1 patchlevel did not restore the performance -- at least all of it -- and assumed the latest patchlevel with each major version in my statement. That is, my statement was '5.10.1 was slow compared to 5.8.9 and 5.12.4 and 5.14.4'

      But please don't mind me -- I may be talking out of my arse.

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
