in thread how much memory each Perl variable uses

The target is not supposed to be important.

I'd love to run it on Linux in principle, and it would be faster, too, but i don't have a Linux machine anywhere around.

I use Cygwin Perl, because on Windows it's the friendliest environment for installing CPAN packages. Strawberry Perl tries to be friendly, but from my experience it isn't mature enough. ActivePerl is not CPAN-friendly at all.

    If you must run *nix on top of windows, get a VM and run the real thing in there.
