in thread Perl Tk crashes when mem usage exceeds 4G on Win10

Thanks for the detailed analysis Ken. I tried to reply last Friday, but forgot to send it and lost my writeup

I'm pretty sure it happens only on Windows. I can try on Win11 as well but I would expect the same. I don't have my Win7 hosts anymore

I really only have access to Strawberry Perl v5.30.x and the linux version I am running... I use perl2exe to distribute my code and I'm locked in on those versions

I did take a look at the active bugs and the 11679 Tk not 64-bit clean was pretty interesting... I do think if that were the issue, it would crash on Linux hosts as well... The code the in tkGlue.c that the bug highlighted has been around for a very long time!

thanks again for the feedback!

    I'd suggest waiting until 1st October before submitting the bug report. That'll give about a week (from the time of the original post) for any further feedback: PM tends to be quieter over the weekend, so there may be more to come.

    In your bug report, I'd stick to what you know: problem on these (list) Perl & Tk combinations; but no problem on these (other list) combinations. I would avoid conjecture altogether: "I'm pretty sure ..."; "I would expect ..."; and similar. It's likely that maintainers have their own testing environments: they can confirm what you report as well as testing other scenarios.

    I'd also include a link to this thread: your report can summarise findings; with the link back to here for details. It shows that you made an effort before raising the bug report. There may be additional information by the time someone gets around to looking at the problem.
