Hi Monks,

I am using 'strawberry-perl-5.32.1.1-64bit.msi' on Windows 64bit (tried Windows10 and Server2012) to process some data files, which requires some very large hashes.

On all system I have tried perl throws "Out of memory!" to console and dies once perl.exe hits about 2.6 to 2.8GB of memory. It seems to run fine if I limit the input slightly to prevent it reaching beyond about 2.4GB

Perl -v says 'This is perl 5, version 32, subversion 1 (v5.32.1) built for MSWin32-x64-multi-thread'

Is perl somehow restricted to 32bit virtual memory limits? I was hoping to be able to go to at least 8GB.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
