The idea was to be able to use map to build the return list. Obviously that makes little sense in void context, which is all your for proposition will be able to provide.

undefs are actually less wasteful than actual values - my @x = (undef) x 10,000,000; consumes 130MB for me, my @x = ('a'x10) x 10,000,000; nearly hits the 500MB mark.

Of course, if you're not in void context and actually intent on returning the resulting list from processing a 10,000,000 key hash, you'll have to be able to fit that in memory anyway. Since you're throwing around big chunks of data, memory can't be a huge concern, otherwise you'd be walking the hash manually and chewing the bits more carefully.

You can't have your cake and eat it - you can't be using an iterator when you're concerned about memory usage.

Makeshifts last the longest.

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.
