    [karlgoethebier]: perldigious: perhaps a block if you are paranoid ;-)
    [choroba]: but undef %hash and %hash = () both work, too, but the first one keeps the memory allocated, while the latter makes it available for other parts of the program.
    [choroba]: iirc
    [perldigious]: karlgoethebier: Well it is a pretty old and complicated (for me) bit of code I wrote (poorly by my current standards), so I'm expecting everything to break when I add the scoping and find out what else is undesireably scope changed. :-)
    [perldigious]: Ah, thanks choroba, that sort of thing was precisely what I was wondering when I asked.
    [perldigious]: I didn't want to tie up memory unecessarily basically, I wanted to "delete" it specifically to free it up, and wasn't sure I was even accomplishing that.
