Greetings, dideod.yang,

The regular expressions in your code presents an opportunity for running parallel. With parallel cores among us (our friends), let us take Perl for a spin. Please find below the serial and parallel demonstrations.


use strict; use warnings; open my $input_fh, "<", "test.txt" or die "open error: $!"; open my $sample_fh, ">", "sample.txt" or die "open error: $!"; open my $good_fh, ">", "good.txt" or die "open error: $!"; while (<$input_fh>) { if (/^sample\s+(\S+)/) { print $sample_fh $1, "\n"; } elsif (/^good\s+(\S+)/) { print $good_fh $1, "\n"; } } close $input_fh; close $sample_fh; close $good_fh;


use strict; use warnings; use MCE; open my $sample_fh, ">", "sample.txt" or die "open error: $!"; open my $good_fh, ">", "good.txt" or die "open error: $!"; # worker function sub task { my ( $mce, $slurp_ref, $chunk_id ) = @_; my ( $sample_buf, $good_buf ) = ('', ''); # open file handle to scalar ref open my $input_fh, "<", $slurp_ref; # append to buffers inside the loop while (<$input_fh>) { if (/^sample\s+(\S+)/) { $sample_buf .= $1 . "\n"; } elsif (/^good\s+(\S+)/) { $good_buf .= $1 . "\n"; } } close $input_fh; # Send buffers to the manager process to print accordingly. # This prevents parallel workers from garbling output handles. MCE->print($sample_fh, $sample_buf); MCE->print($good_fh, $good_buf); } # spawn workers early, optionally my $mce = MCE->new( chunk_size => '2m', # 2 megabytes max_workers => 4, use_slurpio => 1, user_func => \&task, )->spawn; # process input file(s) $mce->process({ input_data => "test.txt" }); # shutdown workers $mce->shutdown; # close output handles close $sample_fh; close $good_fh;

50 million test

The tests were timed on a system with a NVMe SSD. Notice the user times. MCE has low overhead.

$ time perl real 0m22.225s user 0m22.018s sys 0m0.171s $ time perl real 0m5.887s user 0m22.925s sys 0m0.293s
