Devel::Cycle is a developer's tool for finding memory cycles in Perl objects.
Since Perl provides its automatic memory management using reference counting,
cyclical/circular references will result in memory that will never be freed.
Optionally, PadWalker (libpadwalker-perl) module enables reporting of cycles
in code closures as well.
