(I'd be interested in documentation for ... possibly another doco link here)

See Perlguts Illustrated. In the light of the OPs later information regarding the number and size of his records; and with careful consideration of the build version of Perl he is using, a more accurate estimate of the total memory requirement can be calculated.

But the point is simply that even using rough estimates, it is easy to see that unless the OP (or you) have access to some particularly high end hardware; regardless of whether the memory overuse is 5x or 50x more than the typical 4GB to (say) 24GB available on most machines; it ain't gonna fly.

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

[GotToBTru]: late to the conversation .. but thanks, Corion, for the reminder about Perl::Tidy
[Corion]: GotToBTru: Heh ;) I'm not really endorsing it, as I found that any gains made through it are easily squandered by the hours spent on configuring it. At least in my case :)
[GotToBTru]: Like most Swiss Army Knives, you can cut yourself trying to find the blade you actually want
[GotToBTru]: i am satisfied with the default settings turning the seemingly random formatting into something reliable
[Corion]: GotToBTru: Yeah, I started a quick(ly implemented but slowly running) implementation of a program that would guess the "best" configuration (that is, least amount of changes) from my code, but then found that it stops parsing the source as soon as it ..
