( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

You are making all sorts of speed assumtions. Cheifly your suppostion is that Perl is 'slow' because of the time taken to load the Perl binary into memory. You are completely off track in all liklihood. For a start it is probably cached on any decent OS. Disk I/O is the most common bottleneck. Crap algorithms rate pretty high as well. If it is a CGI mod_perl will probably be at least an order of magnutude faster, maybe more. If you have a specific problem you may find we can offer a specific answer. For example I cut a couple of orders of magnitude off a long running task here Re: Performance Question which was a pure disk I/O bottleneck.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
