in reply to Re^2: Mini-Tutorial: Perl's Memory Management
in thread Mini-Tutorial: Perl's Memory Management

for what i understood i disagree, there are 3 phases:

clear release the bind of the data to the variable

free the data is released to the mem manager so can be reused by perl

free to OS may happen in some cases after the free.

Where the first 2 are how perl behave, and the last depends on the system (OS + how perl was compiled)

Am i wrong?
