  • Posted Perl performance evolution over the last decade to Dimitrios Kechagias

    I was reading recently about some significant Python 3.11 performance improvements, and I was wondering whether Perl 5 still gets significant performance improvements on each version - even though it might be more mature, thus more optimized in the first…

  • Commented on What happened to Perl 7?
    IMHO announcing Perl 7, which was picked up by the non-perl community as clear "signs of life" from what they thought of as an irrelevant/dying language, and then taking it back was quite a big step backwards, so I'd thought...
  • Commented on Cloud Provider Performance Comparison - Perl & more

    Apart from the last two that are proprietary, all the others have the full code here (if they are programs, otherwise the exact command I run with time). Not sure what more a github repo would do? Is there something...
  • Posted Perl performance on Apple M1 to Dimitrios Kechagias

    I recently got an Apple M1 Mac Mini, half out of curiosity, half because it was exactly what I would need: I have a low end Mac just to try out things like new Xcode betas etc, like a "canary" machine. My old 2012 Mac Mini stopped getting official Apple…
