( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I wholeheartedly agree. I'd _love_ to get milkbone's memory usage under 1 meg. Even under 10 megs would be better. I'm just not sure how to go about doing this. Even a simple Tk script that just displays a window uses 5.2 meg on my Win2K box. The numbers in Linux are similarly frightening.

So if anyone has any tips on how to go about making Tk use less memory, please reply here or /msg me. It would help immensely. Or, if you've got a spare minute, pick up the milkbone source (milkbone.org) and let me know if there's anything majorly wrong with the way it works. I'm afraid, though, that this is an inevitable consequence of using Tk. Thanks, Bill


milkbone - perl/tk instant messaging - it's the only way to fly
