[REBOL] Re: Freeing memory

From: jelinem1:nationwide at: 1-May-2001 9:43

I had noticed this, and guessed that the garbage collection in REBOL reclaims memory back into it's own pool, but does not release it back to the OS. - Michael Jelinek Gisle Dankel <[dankelg8--cs--man--ac--uk]> on 05/01/2001 09:15:07 AM From: Gisle Dankel <[dankelg8--cs--man--ac--uk]> on 05/01/2001 09:15 AM Please respond to [rebol-list--rebol--com] Sent by: [rebol-bounce--rebol--com] To: <[rebol-list--rebol--com]> cc: Subject: [REBOL] Freeing memory Hi, if I create a block like this:
>> a: make block! 100000
the memory usage of REBOL increases. If I do
>> unset 'a
there should be no references to the block. However, the memory is not released. How can I get the memory back? Gisle
