So, basically: Because Perl is considerably slower in one single comparison, even though it is faster in 7 others, it gets judged as slower overall?

Seems like your graphs up top in the language versus language comparison need to be reworked to make it clear how bit the difference in reality between x3 and 1/3 is, because right now it is deceptive.

What are you looking at? Perl is shown slower on 3 tasks.


Note the word "considerably". There is only one single task in which perl takes a considerable amount of time longer than Ruby.
