  • I'd be wary of using a void context in each of those benchmarks. Perl has been known to "optimise" these.
    • It seems to me that if void context was having an effect, the rates would be much higher than on the order of 5,000 iterations/sec. The benchmark could be more realistic, but it doesn’t seem fatally flawed as a mere rule of thumb measurement.

    • duplicating the tests with "say $NULL ( );" wrapped around formerly void context (going to /dev/null of course) and adding "use warnings;", I do see a "useless in void" warning for the first test, but the change in times with say instead of void context is minimal or nil.
