Hello again;
I grabbed Devel::Size, and according to it, each of the hashes is 6.1M in size.
'top' shows the memory usage at 18M, and I don't think the interface is using 6M of space... So I'm not entirely convinced thats quite correct. But it stills gives an idea of the inflation - 727k to 6.1M.
I've never been able to make BerkeleyDB install correctly (Out of two tries, I believe), so I'm not terribly interested in it out of previous predjudices, but I could certainly entertain using an ondisk DB... I can't imagine it'd be terribly quick for the lookups, but I'll never know until I try.
(My workstation runs Linux, if that tells anyone anything)

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
