in reply to Faster Flat File

I'd probably try something like this (untested):
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use IO::File; use Text::CSV_XS; { my $fh = new IO::File ("<$path/$database") or die "Can't open file: $!\n"; my $csv = new Text::CSV_XS ({ sep_char => '|' }); while ( my ($a,$b,$c,$d,$e,$f) = @{$csv->getline($fh)} ) { if ( -1 != index($s, $d) && -1 != index($r, $e) && -1 != index($m, + $f) ){ print "$b\n"; if ($c eq "Y"){ print "$a - tal\n"; } elsif ($p eq "Y"){ print "$e"; } } } }

I used index, since it's faster than a regex, generally, and you seemed to be simply searching for a substring, not an actual regex. Also, Text::CSV_XS is XS (compiled C) which is usually quite fast (faster than Perl, at any rate).


Update: As merlyn pointed out recently, index need not be faster than a regex (thanks for pointing that out, blakem).
