Data::Dumper is a good tool to help track down circular references. If you see something like:

$VAR1 = \$VAR1; or $VAR1 = [ $VAR1 ]; or $VAR1 = { key => $VAR1 };

Then you know you have something to fix.

Also, I've experienced a few problems w/ memory leaks in perl 5.6.0 and linux. e.g.:

eval "use Any::Module";

Leaks memory for me, and doesn't appear to with 5.6.1. But I haven't done enough testing to be definitive about that. Someone else might be able to tell you more about this.

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.
