Perl's memory should flat-line ... if you programmed it right. Some things to check:
  1. Are you continuously adding elements to a hash or array? For example, if you keep doing something like $foo[$i++] = $bar;, you keep telling Perl to increase the size of @foo.
  2. Do you have any circular references? They are a cause of true memory leaks.
  3. Are you scoping things as much as possible? Do you have any large global hashes/arrays that you could scope a little smaller?
  4. Are you constantly loading new classes/modules? I was on a project for a OO application that would dynamically load the classes it needed as it needed to. Every time that happened, the memory usage would increase, but only a fixed amount.
  5. Are you fooling around with deleting from %INC and @INC? I'm not sure what that would do, but it probably won't actually remove the initial require from RAM.

/me wants to be the brightest bulb in the chandelier!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
