Subject: Console command LEAKs fails without output if Devel::GC::Helper not installed
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 317b
If LEAKS is called from within the console and Devel::GC::Helper is not installed, the command silently fails (although the logs will reveal that the forked child died because of the missing module). I'm attaching a small patch that wraps the require inside an eval, and warns the user if D::GC::H is not installed.
