Obviously, “if you’ve got the RAM, flaunt it.”

Well, if you say so... :-D

I found it interesting, so I tried some of BrowserUk's test scripts. I populated the rands.dat file - 0m48.948s. Then I loaded it into a hash - 0m37.042s. The array was significantly faster - 0m28.708s. Loading the data into an array took a fair bit of RAM, but since I am only using roughly 7GB of 12GB, I didn't encounter any swapping - 0m59.864s. Going on the first numbers, I must have something faster in my system already. However, not ten times faster. If you don't have the RAM, you may need to get it. :-)

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.
