I've tried this argument as well, pointing out that iexplore often consumes more memory than my app. mysqld consumes around 40MB; opera takes about 25MB. I personally don't see much of a problem with these figures, so I think I may just have to give up on these users. If they're not willing to recognize that 25MB _isn't that bad_ then forget them. :)

in thread make perl release memory
The other thing is that when I open new windows in my app (it's Tk-based) or perform certain actions, the memory increases slightly. I've personally never seen it go beyond 27MB, even after days of usage and hundreds of windows being opened. So I guess what I want to know is: is this indicative of a memory leak, or is it something I shouldn't worry about?
This project can be downloaded from the link in my sig if anyone feels the need to test it out.
Thanks for your answers, everyone!
