The company I work for has asked me to come up with some neat perl 5.004_04 (or lower) one-liners that use no modules and eat a lot
of resources. We sell performance management software and are seeking ways to create some artificial load. I hadn't thought to ask in here until i saw
eval + no warnings = no memory
They would need to be one-liners so they could be basically memorized by engineers who don't know perl and used to demo stuff on site. (we create the load to show our software can detect it and do something about it)
All the boxes we'd want to load would be Unix (Sun, Linux, HP, AIX in order of likelihood) and would already
have agreed to grant us root access. Any good ones monks?
