in thread Looking for Leaks

If things weren't accessible, how would you find them? At least in pure Perl, this would be impossible. You could iterate over all the symbol tables, following references to reachable objects, but this wouldn't find things that had leaked.

    In pure Perl, yes. In XS, it should be possible to iterate through the entire region of memory and see if anything has a valid reference. Also (and I'm stretching my memory here), isn't there a way in C to find out all the malloc'ed areas? You could compare that with the list of all reachable objects and see if there's a discrepancy...

[marto]: I think that actually caught up with me yesterday, felt a really sharp pain where my neck meets my skull.
[Corion]: marto: Ouch, yeah...
[marto]: the boys uncle will take them for a couple of hours this afternoon :)
[marto]: only at work 3 days this week, then off to Copenhagen for a wedding
[marto]: back the following Monday, potentially gone 2-3 days the next week for work
[Corion]: Oh - "Cyber Monday" week is coming up... That's why weird stuff is already discounted now...
[Corion]: marto: Oh, cool, I hope you get to enjoy the trip and Copenhagen! I found it nice (but the mermaid is underwhelming)
[marto]: the kids and their mother are coming too, actually only 9 people at the wedding in total. Still, will be fun
