in thread threads::shared variables not really shared... or are they?

Ooops, you are right, this one gives memory use that agrees with the OP's original script. I think the sleep calls prevent the locking problem. At least on a faster machine. :-)
#!/usr/bin/perl use threads; use threads::shared; my @a : shared; for (1..10) { sleep 1; threads->new(\&foo); } sleep 1; system "grep VmSize /proc/$$/status"; <>; sub foo { for (1..10) { push @a, " " x 1e6; } print @a . " elements in \@a\n"; }

I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth. Cogito ergo sum a bum
