I just updated RatMine’s QTL to XML script using the
new Perl API. The problem is that the script, which is processing a ~800KB
file quickly uses up all the available RAM on my Mac (8GB) and fails around
line 138 of 1772. The script ran on the old API (I really just did a replace
all for ItemFactory). Any insight into why the new API is more memory intensive
and/or suggestions for bringing down my overhead?
