Still, I'm having trouble seeing why turning a standard for loop into a statement modifier cuts down on the memory usage.
I didn't suggest it did.
Only that it reduced the memory requirement compared to the map variant; and sourcecode/mindspace compared to the standard for loop.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
