in thread Does undef free ram?

I believe my arrays will be limited to 10,000 or less. Normally I wouldn't be concerned because I've never seen a problem with Perl on a Linux box holding ram after the job completes. I don't know if this is to the credit of Linux or Perl or both. But so far once the job completes it looks like all ram is returned.

However since I'll be using a couple of dozen 10,000+ arrays one after the other during the same job I was concerned about memory during the job.

[Corion]: marto: Yep, but I didn't make it up north, sorry ;)
[Corion]: But LPW was enjoyable, even though it's always a bit hectic due to cramming everything into one day
[Corion]: I have no feeling about how my talk was received, but I'm happy with it, which counts the most to me ;-D
[Corion]: Also, London is always a nice visit, as I got to meet a friend there, and spent some time offline, working on "minor" features of the shadertoy thing ;)
[marto]: maybe next year when the kids are a little older I'll have time to attend perl events in Europe
