eval 'no warnings' while (0==0);
The above code curiously eats memory like a fiend! I'm not sure if
this is expected behavior or not, but it caught me as a surprise while
writing a (slightly) more complex program that had the same 'no warnings'
within an eval.
I don't have a really intellegent guess as to why it would legitimately
or illegitimately be doing this, so I'm just throwing this one out there.
I've gotten around the problem in my program by removing the need for
the 'no warnings'. (It should be noted that if warnings was not turned on
initially the program will not thrash the memory).
p.s. Hi guys, long time, no code.
