[REBOL] View app consuming memory
From: amicom::sonic::net at: 12-Jun-2003 16:04
Does anyone know how to get the following to not eat memory?
view/new main-box: make face [size: 100x300]
loop 100 [
recycle probe system/stats ;show memory usage
main-box/pane: layout [slider rate 10]
This was reduced from a MUCH more complicated commercial program in daily
use, and the memory consumption problem is much more pronounced in that
environment, but stems back (at least partially) to this.
It is such a problem that it is not uncommon for a single instance of the
program to be using over 100MB after a few hours of usage as each time the
non-simplified version of the above is called, it consumes between 2 and
3MB of memory.
Normally, the slider also has an 'engage function attached to it (which is
triggered by 'rate), but that was removed for clarity. The problem doesn't
seem to happen other than with 'rate enabled on the facet (at least it
hasn't in my tests). It does not appear to be limited to the 'slider facet.
Even after 'unview/all and 'recycle, most of the memory consumed is still
It appears to be a memory consumption bug to me.
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
