[ #8195 ]

Note to self.

Don't. Ever. Program. While. Drunk.

I just came home after a two beer night out (and that's not even being drunk) and decided to benchmark Data::Dumper + eval vs Data::Denter [1].

And boy, did I do the most weird mistakes. We're talking

print "Length\n";

becoming

my "Length\n";

I hereby pledge to never declare a string literal again.

/J

[1] Profiling showed a lot of time in Data::Denter, and the Benchmark shows that eval STIRNG is 10x faster than Undent. The profiling also showed me that DProf makes perl very crashable.
