in reply to Why Thrash Memory?

Generally, I think that it's better to let garbage collection handle it, since undef()s clutter the code. That being said, it might be worth it if the variable is something simply huge... in which case it might be worth it to deal with the data in smaller chunks.

I think I've just succeeded in echoing chromatic again.
