From rlm@raggy.doubledogmusic.com

Created by rlm@scareduck.com

Whenever I use perl -d and install a breakpoint which does a
conditional break on a regular expression, I get a severe
memory leak. Following is a minimal test case​:

-----
#!/usr/bin/perl

open(YES,"yes|");

#
# do forever
#
while (<YES>)
{
  my(@​y) = split(/\s+/);
  $foo = $yes;
}
-----

Run this as perl -d, and type 'b 11 $foo =~ /JFDKFDJ/'.

If you're running Linux with the /proc filesystem enabled, you can see
the memory leak in progress by finding the process id, then typing

  cd /proc/<pid>
  while true; do
  clear
  grep Vm status
  sleep 1
  done

Great minds think alike. Or some other proverb.

I had also discovered this bug and posted a fix yesterday.

So this should be fixed in Perl 5.6.1. If you need a patch sooner,
mail me and I'll send one suitable for perl5.005_03.

Thankyou for the bug report.

Oh, and your test case wasn't minimal - mine was only 3 lines. :-)
