Math::Prime::Util::MemFree - An auto-free object for Math::Prime::Util
my $mf = Math::Prime::Util::MemFree->new;
# ... do things with Math::Prime::Util ...
# When the last object leaves scope, prime_memfree is called.
This is a more robust way of making sure any cached memory is freed, as it will
be handled by the last "MemFree" object leaving scope. This means if
your routines were inside an eval that died, things will still get cleaned up.
If you call another function that uses a MemFree object, the cache will stay
in place because you still have an object.
Creates a new auto-free object. This object has no methods and has no data. When
it leaves scope it will call "prime_memfree", thereby releasing any
extra memory that the Math::Prime::Util module may have allocated.
Memory is not freed until the last object goes out of scope.
"prime_memfree" may always be called manually. All memory is freed
at "END" time, so this is mainly for long running programs that want
extra control over memory use.
