split // will be around 3x as fast in 5.10

[ #34077 ]
After a recent patch of mine to blead split // is around three times as faster than it was, it's even faster than unpack! I'll be giving a lightning talk on this (click the "slides/index.html" link) at YAPC::EU 2007 if the conference organizers will let me.

  • All these little tidbits about 5.10 coming out actually make me excited for it to finally come out. : )
    • Agreed. 5.6 was the Unicode/UTF-8 Perl version, 5.8 the "Unicode done better" (or at least, differently) version... and it looks like 5.10 will be the "everything's changed a bit, and for the better" perl.
      • I just hope the release happens sooner rather than later. I have a project coming up that I will need to move to the "latest version of Perl" whatever it may be at the time we start.
