Additionally, appending  for lines gives a significant gain over using -n, so that needs works as well.

EDIT: I agree that '-n' should be what is used here, I was moreso posting in the interest of figuring out why that's so slow. I just made a PR which seems to bring the time for '-n' to be more like that of 'for lines'

    It could be argued you're then comparing different things. The original is strictly a comparison of the equivlaent Perl one-liners.

      They are not quite equivalent. say $0 actually dumps the whole match tree of that capture (something that doesn't even exist in Perl 5), it just happens to be a single string in this case. Still the code that is behind it is must consider the general case.

      It shouldn't make such a big difference, though.
