    Hi to all.
    I worote a program which uses LWP::Simple and fork to grab links from
    site.
    For each found link I start fork() and again LWP content.
    At some point it uses too much system memory and my Linux box
    freezes...
    How can i limit maximum amount of RAM which main perl process can use?
