Just to clarify Pustular Postulant, the OP must have called the functions in a void or scalar context. sort is optimized to do nothing in that situation, so the functions naive and orcish return instantly. Read more for confirmation of Pustular Postulant's results and confirmation that running the sorts in scalar context give results similar to those of the OP.

my @unsorted = sort map { "foo$_.tla" } 0..999; Benchmark::cmpthese(5000, { naive => sub { my @a = naive @unsorted; }, orcish => sub { my @a = orcish @unsorted; }, schwartzian => sub { my @a = schwartzian @unsorted; }, guttros => sub { my @a = guttros @unsorted; }, });

gives me

gives me

That's why it's important to show one's work :)

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
