in reply to Perl "Out of memory!" Error signal backtrace

The problem is that once the perl interpreter has exhausted all memory, there's very little it can do. There is a reserved fixed buffer to allow it to display the the OOM error itself, but doing anything complex like displaying a Carp::confess()-like stack backtrace would require many memory allocations to generate the display, all of which would themselves fail.

Dave.
