in reply to How to increase perl memory space ?

if it 's out of memory, then it's out of memory -- there's nothing to increase, except obviously buy more ram (what, btw, are you starting out with?)...

But the problem is probably in inefficiency somewhere -- if you post your code we can comment on it, point out any potential or actual problems, and suggest solutions/alternatives ...

    Hi davidrw, Thanks, but it's very big application. We are doing lots of stuffs. But, is it possible to know perl memory space or increase that space ?

      You are confused. Perl does not have a limit on the amount of memory it will use (as far as this matter is concerned).

      Your problem is the system cannot allocate any more memory because there none left!

      You can increase the size of your swap file or your can add more RAM. Or you can refine your program so that it does not use so much memory.

      You asked about specific functionality -- creation of the 10,000 ros of excel data. Can you show that snippet of code, or at least pseudo-code for it? (be sure to use <code> and <readmore> tags)
