Subject: Re: Memory leak in Sybperl 2.0.9 on NT?
Date: Feb 12 1998 4:47PM

I'm using the same setup. SybPerl 2.0.9, precompiled Perl 5.00402, and I
compiled Sybperl with MS VC++ 5.0.

I didn't get all of SybPerl working, just the DBlib.  CTlib & BCP both crash.

I have a program, that I did not write (but did port from Solaris), that on
some large queries can cause my memory allocation to climb up to 2 Gbytes
(yes Gigabytes, I set my swap space up that hight just to test) at which
point the perl.exe process dies.

I *don't* know that this is a leak in SybPerl.  It could be elsewhere in
this program.
