Not able to release memoryby asinghvi (Acolyte)
|on Mar 03, 2004 at 06:01 UTC||Need Help??|
asinghvi has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am trying to address some memory limitation in my perl program. While doing my research, I was curious to see how memory gets released in perl once a variable goes out of scope.
I have the following code:
I see that when the data is loaded, the memory of this process is (e.g. 200MB). But after destructing "%hash1", I don't see any change in the perl process/residual memory. Isn't it supposed to reduce the process size of the perl process.
Am I missing something here
Thanks in advance for your help
