I recently upgraded from Leopard to Snow Leopard.

Now, some scripts that ran nicely on Perl 5.8.9 are consuming all available RAM on Perl 5.10.0, and bringing the system to its knees.

The scripts I'm referring to create a series of large objects, each of which should be garbage-collected when the next object is created.

Apparently, Perl 5.10.0 is not picking up the trash.

I know how to use Perl 5.8.9 on Snow Leopard, but I would rather use the 64-bit version.

Any suggestions?

Might it be worth trying upgrading to a recent version of Perl? The latest stable version is 5.12.1
