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.

Chatterbox?
[marioroy]: LA, yeah. than there's no reason why it cannot work inside qx. But chatting is hard in PM. I cannot see the code now.
[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: sometimes a quick glance isn't enough.
[Lady_Aleena]: What?! Can't stat ~/Music: No such file or directory? The ~/ doesn't expand?
[Lady_Aleena]: And the env variable $HOME doesn't work either. !@#$
[shmem]: no, that's a shell feature. Use $ENV{HOME}
[marioroy]: my $ans = qx{ find \$HOME -name "*.pl" -exec ls -l {} \\; };
[marioroy]: must backslash $ inside qx
