- This time last year I had to constantly restart (sometimes daily!) a Ruby background process because it kept memory leaking :(
- While I have multiple Perl background processes I've written that continue to run without a restart for over 5 years :)
So yes you have to be careful and not leave something silly around with Perl (re: DESTROY / weaken) but I've had far more success with Perl compared to Ruby (libs/VM) on this!
