The real size of a hash is os dependant right?
Is there a place like perlguts that talks about how hashes are stored on each os?
If so would ut be possible to calculate or 'estimate' the real size of a hash? Like 2k would be for the pointer and 'index' and x times the length of an $hash{'element'}.

If anyone knows these details please help out.
