[REBOL] Managing the Image Cache
From: sanghabum::aol::com at: 18-Jun-2001 12:06
Is there any way of getting finer-grained control over the cahse used by
Problem. I have a program that lets the family browse a photo album (JPG
images.) Each click of forward/back gets them another 12 photos. The images
are loaded into a VID box with the Load-Image function.
But each image is cached automatically. The machine's memory usage starts to
soar and at somewhere around the 200 image mark my system/stats is over 600MB
and the machine (a 128Meg win98 thing) starts to impersonate molasses.
I know load-image has a /clear refinement to empty the cache. But that's
overkill. I'd like the last 100 images or so to remain cached.
So does anyone know of a way to set an upper limit on the image cache? Or to
partially purge it?
