You should keep in mind that when lexical variables go out of scope, the memory used by them is NOT reclaimed by Perl. This is an optimization, assuming you will use the lexicals again. If you don't want this behavior, you can explicitly set the variables to undef when you're done with them, which will free their memory.

Are you doing anything with subroutine references? It's possible to chew up RAM by using things like Error.pm's try/catch syntax if you aren't careful to avoid accidental closures.

You might want to check out the mod_perl guide for additional information on Perl memory management.

Title:
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.
