in reply to How we use Perl.

Not to name any names, but a we have had memory allocation issues with a particular DBD package. The memory leak was slow and it only appeared when disconnecting from data sources.

I for one wish you would name names. One of the advantages of The Monastery is that we all may benifit from each other experiences with available modules, good or bad. It certainly may benifit others if they knew of a possible memory leak.

You could save someone a lot of debugging effort.
