in thread Does "preallocating hash improve performance"? Or "using a hash slice"?

I hope perl is not so inefficient that it copies all the content of a list when it needs to process it,

Hoping doesn't change anything; I described what the code (perl sources) actually do; it is your choice whether to believe me or not.

You could always check for yourself:

Well that's too bad,

Oh, sorry. I wasn't aware you had joined the Answers Approval Subcommittee?

    Fair enough.

    I wasn't aware you had joined the Answers Approval Subcommittee?

    I'm planning on leaving, they still didn't deliver the cookies. That (the "too bad" part) was clumsy of me, sorry. I'm not sure how offensive (or line-crossing) my answer is because I may not get all the implications of my formulation. I do understand that I don't get to judge your decision not to post something.

    Are you sure that what I said?

    Even less so now that you ask that. I was trying to make sense of your answer in the context of this thread, clearly I got the wrong message.
