The reason it's slow is that is implements the read-only-ness of variables via tied objects. This mechanism is inherently slow. Perl simply has to do a lot of work under the hood to make tied variables work.
This module corrects the speed problem, at least with respect to scalar variables. When Readonly::XS is installed, Readonly uses it to access the internals of scalar variables. Instead of creating a scalar variable object and tying it, Readonly simply flips the SvREADONLY bit in the scalar's FLAGS structure.
Readonly/XS version 1.04 ======================== This is a companion module to Readonly.pm. You do not use Readonly::XS directly. Instead, once it is installed, Readonly.pm will detect this and will use it for creating read-only scalars. This results in a significant speed improvement. This does not speed up read-only arrays or hashes. INSTALLATION To install this module, do the standard P more»
