Class::Std::Fast_XS - speed up Class::Std::Fast by adding some XS code
Speeds up Class::Std::Fast by replacing it's accessors/mutators and DESTROY method by XS variants.
The speed gain varies by platform:
Using perl 5.8.8 on Ubuntu 8.04 (32bit) Linux, the measured speed gain is around 7.5% for accessors (getters) and around 35% for mutators (setters). DESTROY was around 220% faster on this platform.
On a RHEL 5.0 box (64bit) with perl-5.8.8 the speed gain is around 40% for getters and around 60% for setters.
The speed gain on ActivePerl 5.8.8 (822) on Windows XP built with MinGW/MSYS/gcc is around 45%
ActivePerl 5.10 (1001) on Windows XP yielded around 30% for accessors and 50% for mutators.
All you have to do is to require this module before you load/create Class::Std::Fast- based classes. More precisely, all Class::Std::Fast-based attributes (:ATTR) after loading Class::Std::Fast_XS will be affected.
If you're running a mod_perl environment, you should probably load
Class::Std::Fast_XS from your apache config or your startup.pl.
Only attributes detected after loading are affected.
Only classes created after loading are affected by DESTROY
Class::Std::Fast's DESTROY does not support Class::Std::Fast's object cache yet. This does not mean that classing using the object_cache facility don't work, it just means that the object_cache has no effect yet.
