There's nothing to stop you from using Inline::C, with assembler, to make it all happen. The catch is that you have to construct an array which you return to Perl, so it would be wise to read up on how XS works. The thing is, though, that the cost of manufacturing an array vastly exceeds any speed gain you'd get by using inline assembler. These days, division isn't nearly as expensive as it used to be, and memory is often the bottleneck.

I think if you're that concerned about speed, though, you wouldn't be using Perl anyway. You'd be using C, or C++, or possibly even FORTRAN.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
