TONYC TPF Grant June 2014
Message ID:
Approximately 63 tickets were reviewed or worked on, and 10 patches were

Probably the most interesting task this month was attempting to
optimize regen/ which became noticably slower when
extra EBCDIC code pages were added to the build.  Two fairly simple
optimizations fell out of the profile from Devel::NYTProf.

get_a2n() and get_I8_2_utf() were each called over 150,000 times, and
returned their mappings as a list, while in most cases only a small
part of the mapping was used.  I changed these return an array
reference instead, speeding up significantly.
