mihirjha has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have question about perl memory management. What I know that perl manager works on the basis of reference count/garbage collection and memory pools. The problem which I am facing is that, if the memory is acquired by perl once, it is not made available to another application till the life of the perl application. So, the other application has less memory to execute its program , even when perl is not using it.
Is there anyway out make to return that unused memory to OS?
