Hello Gtforce,

without other details (it's the data already in memory?) it's a matter of guessing, but..

pass by reference? Are you filling new datastructures to pass your data around? If the original data it's alreaady read you can take a reference to some items and pass just the reference to your subroutines. See also the same matter at effective perl programmer and Is it possible to do pass by reference in Perl?

This big amount of data and relations between parts let me think of databases: you can have a first step where you put all your data into a (temporary?) database (sqlite for example) and a second step where you just SELECT appropriate items and you update your statistics.

Be sure of freeing no more used variables. Four days for just 2 millions records seems a bit slow for me.

If my suggestions do not fit your task please provide a bit more details.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
