bug#15755: 24.3.50; cperl-mode annoyingly slow on my netbook


From: Jambunathan K
Subject: bug#15755: 24.3.50; cperl-mode annoyingly slow on my netbook
Date: Sun, 10 Nov 2013 11:01:14 +0530
User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/24.3.50 (gnu/linux)

A quick update:  Some magic has happened between the following revisions:

   114868 address@hidden
   115051 address@hidden

The slowdown with the recipe above is not that noticeable now.  Is this
magic or is there an explanation?
