Re: Shell script loop runs out of memory
1. Does "fewer forks" mean that some forks are still occurring, thus the same
memory crash will still happen, but not right away? Just delaying the
inevitable, for longer than my original script does?
I think so, assuming the problem is that forks are not getting fully reclaimed.
2. What is this I read about "rebasing" for BLODA-related issues ... Can
rebasing help me to completely resolve this script problem? I read the docs
about "rebase all" but don't understand whether it would be effective for my
situation. Or do I just need to close any of the offending software such as
anti-virus, then reopen CygWin and try my script again?
Rebasing may or may not be necessary, but it can certainly be important to
have BLODA inactive, which often means *removing* it, because of all the little
background things and services these packages throw in.
