( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hello all, I am maintaining Perl legacy code where template toolkit is being used to generate a XML file. So we provide the template file, the variables, the template object and the location of the output file(where I want the output to be dumped).This goes to the Perl template toolkit and it provides me with the output file. I believe the toolkit does the magic of parsing the variables and the template for creating the output.(Correct me if i am wrong). Now it all works fine until the input data(the variables) size is too much and my Perl crashes(Perl command line interpreter has stopped working). I have a process explorer where i have observed the memory size and Perl consumes around 1.3 GB before crashing. I am providing the code below. If there is anything else needed kindly let me know as this is my first post here

# Get template object my $tobj = $self->_getTemplateObject(); # Set template variables my $vars = {Testrun => $self, Environment => $environment, RunData => $rundata, Filter => $self->getFilterObject(), }; # If file option was supplied, then output to a file if ($file) { #getTemplateFile - access the template file in correct format if ($tobj->process($self->_getTemplateFile(), $vars, $file)) { return; } }

In reply to perl is crashing due to memory leak when the template toolkit output is being dumped into an output file(xml file) by kimya8

  • 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:

  • 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).
