I haven't checked the links provided here yet for lack of time. I have run into this in the past. The error I was having was with pop and shift not releasing the memory on shared arrays.

For a quick fix I changed the dequeue method in Thread::Queue to do a: delete $q->[-1] (which returns the value deleted) instead of a shift. I also changed the enqueue to unshift instead of push to return it the correct behavior of a queue. This seems to work.

Not sure if this will help, or what the internal differences between a delete and shift would be to a shared array. Good Luck.


Edited: Ah there certainly is a patch, I could of used that few months ago. :(

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
