I'm running a Perl script that parses information from around 7,000 HTML files. Probably not really relevant, but I'm just trying to describe that this is, well, doing a lot of stuff. I originally had them just print out the information I was looking for right into the terminal and then I pasted that into my spreadsheet. However, about half way through, I was told that I was out of memory and it stopped.
Out of memory! - nothing else
I Googled, but I couldn't find anything that talked about the terminal specifically printing this. I could find posts related to Linux about just generally running out of memory, but I wanted to be sure. I've tried, with no success, to have it write to a .txt file instead of printing out into the terminal.
How can I fix this and let the Perl script run all the way through?
