Faster File::Compare

17 years agoFaster File::Compare
Gisle Aas [Wed, 5 Feb 1997 13:42:49 +0000]
Faster File::Compare

The following optimization speeds up File::Compare with 30% on my
machine (in a test where most files in fact were different).

One could perhaps also optimize the situation where the two files are
the same thing.  Is it portable to compare (stat)[0,1] for the two
files and return 0 if these two numbers are equal?

Here is another tiny patch to pp_aassign: it preallocates the
array. Memory saving is not very big for the above script (5%), but the
speed advantage may be bigger.

No, all this is wrong. It is 20bytes/elt, and we have stack,
mortals-stack, 1..100000, @a and @b.

Everything is OK now, including <=>.

17 years agoForbid ++ and -- on readonly values
John Q. Linux [Sat, 11 Jan 1997 03:47:16 +0000]
Forbid ++ and -- on readonly values

Subject: You can ++ and -- readonly integer scalars? (patch included)

  I managed to find an illustration of the bug in a perl one-liner:

perl -e '*a = \100; $a++; print "$a\n"'
101

  Perhaps that's been fixed in one of the beta releases which I'm not
running; or perhaps I'm the only one who finds that slightly incorrect.
If so, ignore the rest of this message.

  You can modify readonly scalars using any of the pre/post
increment/decrement operators. Apparently, the only readonly checking is
done for cases like '100++'.

  I managed to find the relevant code and add some SvREADONLY checks. It
now dies on the inc/dec of readonly scalars with the appropriate nasty
message. I just thought I'd share my patch.

Raphael Manfredi [Tue, 14 Jan 1997 21:16:28 +0000]
Full documentation generation patch

I propose the following patch for perl5.004. It automates the
generation of the documentation and is derived from the pioneer work
of Tom Christiansen, which was sub-documented, unfortunately.

It allows one to run 'roffitall' to generate the full manual and
table of contents, based on existing installed files only.

Next step: automate the maintainance of the roffitall file list, or
generate it automatically... Well, the current version should be OK
for 5.004.

It doesn't seem sensible to fill up the pods with history like this.
In fact, perltrap has listed the feature as discontinued rather than
deprecated, since at least 5.002.  It's been gone for well over a year
and nobody's complained.   Let's just bury it.    I suggest replacing
