Paul Hankin came up with a formula to calculate a Fibonacci numbers without recursively (or iteratively) generating prior ones. Don’t get too excited: his non-iterative, closed-form solution in *O(n²)*. That means it’s slow when *n* is big. I was curious how well this would do in Perl. It’s very fast in Python and dog slow in Perl.
