in reply to Another "out of memory!" problem

My guess would be that you are leaking memory because you are not destroying your HTML::Treebuilder objects properly. From the docs:

4. and finally, when you're done with the tree, call $tree->delete() to erase the contents of the tree from memory. This kind of thing usually isn't necessary with most Perl objects, but it's necessary for TreeBuilder objects. See HTML::Element for a more verbose explanation of why this is the case.

A simple undef() is not enough.

    Hi jau, yes! that was exactly the problem. Nice to see it was such a simple solution, and a real "duh" moment for me. Thanks so much. Scott
