NAME ^

Surveyor::Benchmark::HTMLEntities - Benchmark HTML entity escaping

SYNOPSIS ^

Install Surveyor::App to get the survey program.

To test the defaults:

        % survey -p Surveyor::Benchmark::HTMLEntities URL

To compare pure Perl behavior:

        % env PERL_ONLY=1 survey -p Surveyor::Benchmark::HTMLEntities URL

DESCRIPTION ^

HTML::Escape provides a limited functionality HTML entity escaper. It only handles ><&"'. As such, it can be quite a bit faster because it does less.

Here are some numbers from my Mid-2012 MacBook Air:

XS versus pure Perl:

        Benchmark: timing 10000 iterations of html_entities, html_escape...
        html_entities: 14 wallclock secs (14.09 usr +  0.01 sys = 14.10 CPU) @ 709.22/s (n=10000)
        html_escape:  1 wallclock secs ( 0.68 usr +  0.00 sys =  0.68 CPU) @ 14705.88/s (n=10000)

fair fight:

        Benchmark: timing 10000 iterations of html_entities, html_escape...
        html_entities: 14 wallclock secs (13.79 usr +  0.01 sys = 13.80 CPU) @ 724.64/s (n=10000)
        html_escape:  7 wallclock secs ( 7.57 usr +  0.01 sys =  7.58 CPU) @ 1319.26/s (n=10000)
set_up( URL )

Fetch the web page and store it for use in the benchmarks.

tear_down
bench_html_escape

Use HTML::Escape to encode. This is an XS module.

HTML::Escape only encodes the ><&"'.

bench_html_entities

Use HTML::Entities to encode. This is an pure Perl module.

I tell encode_entities to only encode ><&"' so it matches what HTML::Escape will do. Otherwise, encode_entities escapes wide characters too.
