Subject Memory usage
Date Tue, 11 Sep 2007 17:28:29 GMT
Hi.  I'm trying to estimate (forecast) perl memory requirements for storing
simple lists (hashes) in memory.

If my lists use integers as keys and all values are either integers or
simple scalar strings (of maximum size each), can the total memory size be
estimated by simply factoring the total number of key=value pairs when
considering the maximum byte size of each value? What other overhead is
required for each list?

Any links or discussion would be great.
