What happens when you use the method mirror?

    It doesn't happen for me, which version of LWP are you using?

      So, you can actually execute that piece of code to dl a large file (~100MB+) and have it copied directly to a file, without using a portion of memory directly proportional to file's size?
      If that is the case, then I most definitely must be missing something. Can you spot something wrong with my code?

      PS: Didnt know 'Devel::VersionDump'; thanks for the input.

        I did 38M/135M and , the memory never grew past 10M. For server (never past 12M) I used

         plackup -l localhost:80 -e " use Plack::App::Directory; my $app = Plack::App::Directory->new({ root => q[.] })->to_app; "

        Can you spot something wrong with my code?

        Nope, I don't see any mistakes but on linux (BREWED) makes me think maybe you're using a fudgy malloc? Kinda unlikely but I've seen folks complain about it :) I'm on win32 so you probably can't compare my Config:)

        $ perl "-V:.{0,}alloc.{0,}" d_attribute_malloc='undef'; d_malloc_good_size='undef'; d_malloc_size='undef'; d_mymalloc='undef'; i_malloc='define'; i_mallocmalloc='undef'; mallocobj='malloc.o'; mallocsrc='malloc.c'; malloctype='void *'; usemallocwrap='define'; usemymalloc='n';

    Tried that one too. Happens exactly the same.

    Although, my approach to the issue was that, having tested a few different ways without success, it would actually be me doing something wrong/missing something rather than library's option/func not working as expected.
    For that reason, I stopped exploring different options and focused on spotting what Im missing out.
