Your results indicate that File::Find is pretty oblivious to the number of files whereas the others are much faster than File::Find until a rather common point. The interesting thing is that the point at which the others start to peform terribly is the same point that File::Find actually becomes more efficient for a clip. I wonder why - cache effects, perhaps? In any case, it seems that the methods used in the others could use this information to improve their scaling, and perhaps get as scalable (but faster) than File::Find altogether.

but to build compelling alternatives Mixing code and content is awful, but compelling for someone who doesn't know better. There is nothing else that provides the type of immediate gratification of something that "works" as PHP, and this is the most insidious characteristic of it. Any alternative's barrier to entry is, like the rent, too damn high for most people (unfortunately).
