#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; 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). Ciao, Gryn p.s. Hi guys, long time, no code.

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • 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).
