in reply to Clearing an Array of Array's from memory

You could just assign it an empty array

@myarray = ();
or if it is an array ref, then assign it to an empty array ref
$myarray_ref = [];
Cleaning it up will take a little time, but not enough to worry about. Doing this will free up some memory(it won't release memory back to the OS) for perl to reuse.
