in reply to How to capture out of memory excpetion in perl?

perldiag says:

Out of memory! (X) The malloc() function returned 0, indicating there was insufficien +t remaining memory (or virtual memory) to satisfy the request. Perl h +as no option but to exit immediately. At least in Unix you may be able to get past this by increasing your p +rocess datasize limits: in csh/tcsh use limit and limit datasize n (w +here n is the number of kilobytes) to check the current limits and ch +ange them, and in ksh/bash/zsh use ulimit -a and ulimit -d n , respec +tively.

But maybe you can fork the process out and capture the output/exit code.
