Perl: the Markov chain saw

( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
The common idiom seems to be

my %seen; my @uniq = grep { ! $seen{$_} ++ } @arr;

but using a hash slice seems to be a bit faster. I should warn that I have a chequered history with benchmarks so take this with a pinch of salt.

use strict; use warnings; use Benchmark q{cmpthese}; my @arr = ( q{a} .. q{z} ) x 1000; cmpthese( -10, { useGrep => sub { my %seen; return grep { ! $seen{$_} ++ } @arr; }, useSlice => sub { my %seen; @seen{@arr} = (); return keys %seen; }, });

The output.

Rate useGrep useSlice useGrep 13.0/s -- -63% useSlice 35.2/s 172% --

If you need to preserve the order of the array then you should use the grep method.

I hope this is of interest.
