[ #12482 ]
I'm into benchmarks. In the world of TMTOWTDI, I like to know which way is the *fastest*. The I've run various benchmarks for both Perl and Ruby, but it was always just comparing a couple methods here, a couple methods there. I never put together any sort of formal benchmarking suite.

Now, I'm aware of The Great Computer Language Shootout. It's nice for seeing how language X stacks up against language Y. But it's NOT good for comparing language X against itself.

So, I decided to put together a benchmarksuite to see how various operations compare from 1.6.x. to 1.8.0 and from machine to machine. I started with Ruby because, in my mind, it's more of an issue for Ruby than it is for Perl. In addition, things seem to be getting *slower* from 1.6.x to 1.8.0 and I wanted some hard numbers to back up my concerns.

I've posted the results here if you're interested. See the "Thoughts and Musings" at the bottom as well.

Anyone be interested in something like this for Perl? I didn't really see anything on CPAN.
