Hiya

If you run this script you will only see your mem usage (slowly) grow; it looks like curl_close won't free the memmory as it won't make a diff if you use it or not :)

Greetz,

<?
	ob_implicit_flush(TRUE);

	for ($x = 0; $x < 100000; ++$x) {
		$handler = curl_init();
		curl_setopt($handler, CURLOPT_URL, 'http://www.php.net/manual/en/pcre.pattern.syntax.php');
		curl_setopt($handler, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
		$data = curl_exec($handler);
		curl_close($handler);
		unset($handler, $data);
	}
?>
