in thread Out of Memory Error -- Possible Leak?

then how do you explain this ?

try:

perl -e ' use Tk; while (1) { my $top = new MainWindow; }'

it will fill your RAM at a rate of about 1MB per second ...

    If you're right about that, then it's a memory leak in the Tk module, which you should report to its maintainers. That shouldn't happen, and it's not caused by anything that Perl itself is doing.

    Seriously, I do know how Perl's garbage collection works. I'm not just pretending. :-)
