XML::LibXSLT benchmarks

[ #8393 ]

From a happy user:

Last night I ran a mill of a site, 24'532 pages which too 429 seconds!
(An average of 0.0175 seconds/page) ..  ( Now looking at it I am
stunned.. When I woke up I assumed it had taken 7 hours..  But that's
actually 7 minutes!)

  • Ways to Rome [] has a benchmark which shows XML::LibXSLT is one of the fastest modules available. I was actually quite surprised by the fact that it is often faster than XML::LibXML.

    • No surprise there, XSLT was designed to be fast (and even then, almost none of the optimisations are being used) and in the case of XML::LibXSLT pretty much everything happens at C level, whereas in XML::LibXML you are always moving back and forth between C and Perl.
