I am experiencing a memory leak, and I believe I have tracked it down to $main::_
growing in size, with the help of modules like Devel::DumpSizes
. The thing is that there is a lot of code happening between iterations that exhibit the leak. How can I track down more precisely when/where $_
is growing, so I have a chance of putting my finger on this leak? Is anyone aware of known bugs involving memory leaks and $_
? I am using 5.8.0, but I experimented with 5.8.8 and it didn't change my results.
