in reply to tuning hash memory usage

Although it's not clear to me from the problem description, often times you don't need the full data structure throughout the algorithm. If possible, try doing your work as soon as you put an entry into the hash and then delete the entry when you're done. The total data size might be 5000, but if you only have 200 entries in your hash at any given time, that's much more acceptable.

[james28909]: check if it is a hash or an array ect with ref in one sub.
[james28909]: like all the subs calling get_data get_array get_ect, you could just use get_data. once you send the data to get_data, check if it is a hash or an array ect. and do functions for each, in one sub
[james28909]: that looks like it would be alot more work than just renaming the sub though lol
[Lady_Aleena]: james28909, did you even look at the subs?
[james28909]: yes
[Lady_Aleena]: And you see how the first two are vastly different than the third, right?
