Out of memory!

(X) The malloc() function returned 0, indicating there was insufficient remaining memory (or virtual memory) to satisfy the request. Perl has no option but to exit immediately.

At least in Unix you may be able to get past this by increasing your process datasize limits: in csh/tcsh use limit and limit datasize n (where n is the number of kilobytes) to check the current limits and change them, and in ksh/bash/zsh use ulimit -a and ulimit -d n, respectively.
