in reply to Profiling a large program

You can try PadWalker and Devel::Cycle for finding variables that are not getting freed. However, growth in memory doesn't always mean that you have memory leaks. It may just mean that you are loading something large into some of your variables at some point. The memory will stay allocated there one it has been used, even if the variable is garbage collected.

[1nickt]: ... the end of the afternoon. marto How are you, snowed in? Mum and Dad expecting snow today in Surrey. (Have 5" on the ground here in NJ. And my son's high school in SOCal closed until after Xmas due to fires.)
[Corion]: 1nickt: In a sense the meta-bullshit might even be beneficial to you as you get to hear the cow-orkers talk (or not talk) about the issues you perceive. I think Agile is mostly about the meta ;)
[Corion]: 1nickt: On Sunday maybe 10cm of snow fell, and the airport closed, and the trains stopped running etc :) It always comes as a surprise that snow falls here during the winter...
[marto]: 1nickt, no snow, just some ice on the roads and the usual idiocy associated with humans and driving in less than ideal conditions
[1nickt]: Corion I am trying to keep an open mind :-) Or at least, go with the flow. marto yes I saw som photos of lorries overturned on country roads, and wondered why they would have been driving fast enough to have that happen!
