( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

The function I memoize gets passed a file name, slurps the file, normalizes spaces and computes its MD5. So I don't think the content of the file is cached, as it is internal to the function.

I agree that using Memoize only saves me the cost of a hash (filename => MD5). I just like how easy it is to use it, and how it removes some extra code. As programers we are used to adding extra data structures and code to cache that kind of result, but really, using Memoize gets us closer to the initial algorithm for solving the problem. At least that's how I justify using it here ;--)

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
