  • As a result of this post, I updated the tutorial I wrote on getting matching items from arrays []
  • Wouldn't it be a more realistic test if you used the return value from first/grep/~~? Is grep one of the builtins that's optimized for void context? I can never remember...
    • Good point. I've updated the benchmark to work in scalar context. Results are similar. grep isn't optimized in void context because there's no valid use for it, the whole point is the return value. Then again the same could be said of smart match. I guess we need a "smart match in void context" warning.
