I'm the one pointing out that you're making a wild assertion (paraphrasing, "BLOCK eval causes an order of magnitude(s) slowdown") which runs counter to consensus experience without giving any concrete evidence or providing any sample code which evidences the problem in question by myself providing a counter example, yes.

Show us code which evidences this purported order of magnitude(s) slowdown and I bet you'll get a reply from someone either pointing out what you're doing wrong, or if it's actually something you'll have eyes look at it from someone quite likely to be able to fix the problem in perl itself. BLOCK eval does add a small overhead because of the extra steps involved, but not that much (it's a couple of extra opcodes in the tree that don't really do much of anything if no exception occurs).

Or keep whinging about downvotes because you posted something detail- and code-free that (observationally) most people reading think is bunk. Tomayto, tomahto.

Edit: Tested the same benchmarks with a 700+k character "NON-TRIVIAL" chunk of both valid and invalid JSON (the later made by substituting in random garbage somewhere in the former). Aside from the processing rate understandably going down with the larger amount to parse the results look similar showing that the presence or absence of eval has no measurable effect (hundreds/sec for the non-PP versions versus 30k/sec; PP gets on the order of 1/sec eval or no).

The cake is a lie.

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.
