I am trying to run a pretty basic Perl script in an rxvt (or sh) shell and at some point I get the message:

Out of memory during request for 2324 bytes, total sbrk() is 268283904 bytes!

I assume I have hit a memory limitation there. The script would need more memory (obviousely over 256Mb) in order to work properly.
Is there a way I can increase this memory limit? My computer does have more than enough physical RAM installed...
