A quick look with Data::Dumper shows me that Spreadsheet::ParseExcel has circular links in its structures. Namely, the S::P::Cell objects have a Format key which refers the parent object. Thus, if those links are not weakened, the structure will not be released properly when the objects go out of scope.

To fix this would probably require a patch involving the use of weaken in functions that make S::P::Cell objects, or DESTROY methods which do that when the object is about to be garbage collected.

If a patch is not an option for you, you could carefully fork a new process for each file or break up the task in some other way.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • 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).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
