Essentially you have:

#!/usr/bin/perl my %h; my @res; # declare outside the loop open F, $ARGV[0] or die $!; while(<F>) { @res = split /\|/; $h{$res[9]}++; } close F; print "$h{$_}\t$_\n" for keys %h;

You may find this faster (maybe not) as we declare the @res array outside the loop which avoids creating an anonymous array to hold the split values, and then destroying it after each iteration of the loop. I suspect this may be happening in your one liner as even on a dog slow old PII 233 I have similar scripts that will parse megabyte squid/httpd log files in a few seconds - definitely not minutes.

Alternatively slurping the file into memory and using a regex to process it in one pass may be faster it you have a major disk IO issue as the choke rather than CPU cycles. This is a spend more memory to get more speed approach. It is typically much faster to read in large chunks of data than iterate over a file linewise.

#!/usr/bin/perl { local $/; open F, $ARGV[0] or die $!; $all = <F>; close F; @ips = $all =~ m/^(?:[^\|]+\|){9}([^\|]+)/gm; undef $all; # try to reclaim the memory } my %h; $h{$_}++ for @ips; print "$h{$_}\t$_\n" for keys %h;

If neither of these work code it in C or get better hardware or just make a cup of coffee while it runs or nice it up to the max so it takes over the entire system.

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.
