in reply to Memory leak with socket

It could be a bug. Try it with 5.8.0, which has been released some weeks ago. And yes, I know you don't want to upgrade the production server, but you do have a test and a development area, don't you?

If you don't have a memory leak on 5.8.0, the bug was fixed. If it's still there, please use the "perlbug" command to report a bug.

    I have only one test & dev environment. Need to keep it in sync with the prod system.

    OTOH, I will try this at home on my Linux box.


    Everything went worng, just as foreseen.

      So? I've more than 190 versions of Perl on my laptop. Perl doesn't refuse to run if more than one version of it is installed. Besides, how would you ever test if a new release doesn't break anything? Upgrade the production system at the same time as the test system? If you can't use your test system to test whether a bug that's hitting is solved in a new version of Perl, your test environment is not good enough.

      It could very well be that the Linux version doesn't have a problem, where the windows version has. Perhaps the leak is in the kernel.
