in reply to Performance Question

I just recently wrote a script that was doing the same thing
with a much smaller sized file yet it didn't run as fast I thought
it should.

Turns out I had a bug in the script.

Here's the buggy script:
... my $tabCount = 0; my $line = ""; while(<>) { ... $tabCount += $#tabs+1; $line .= $_; if ( $tabCount == ENOUGH_TABS ) { print "$line\n"; $tabCount = 0; } }
The bug is that I was not doing
$line = "";
when I was doing
$tabCount = 0;
thus printing a larger $line
everytime and slowing things way down.
I dunno but you might wanna make sure you don't
have a bone head bugs like mine :)
Good luck!
