in thread DBI::SQLite slowness

If I simply have "$dbh->commit" following the For loop, is that effectively the same as explicitly using transactions?

No; BEGIN WORK (or BEGIN TRANSACTION or just plain BEGIN) starts a transaction in SQL. Then (normally after 1 or more insert/delete/update's) COMMIT commits the transaction (or, when an error occurs, ROLLBACK rolls the transaction back to the state just before the BEGIN).

See DBI's begin_work

(I don't use SQLite; in the above I am assuming SQLite does this the same way that other (RDBMS) databases do)

      That's actually the same behaviour as other DB's have.

      But only now do I see the initial thread/problem (Scaling Hash Limits). (It's useful to link to original threads in follow-up posts, you know). With the relatively small sizes involved, a database doesn't seem necessary.

      If the problem is that simple, can't you just run

      sort -u dupslist > no_dupslist

      on your id list? Perhaps not very interesting, or fast (took about 7 minutes in a 100M test run here), but about as simple as it gets.

      (BTW, just another datapoint (as I did the test already): PostgreSQL (9.4devel) loads about 9000 rows/s, on a slowish, low-end desktop. That's with the laborious INSERT-method that your script uses; bulk-loading (with COPY) loads ~ 1 million rows /second (excluding any de-duplication):

      perl -e 'for (1..50_000_000){ printf "%012d\n", $_; }' > t_data.txt; echo " drop table if exists t; create unlogged table t(klout integer); " | psql; echo "copy t from '/tmp/t_data.txt'; " | psql time < t_data.txt psql -c 'copy t from stdin' real 0m25.661s
      That's a rate of just under 2 million per second


      UPDATE: added 'unlogged', adjusted timings (it makes the load twice as fast)
