in reply to Re^2: Tracking down memory leaks
in thread Tracking down memory leaks

That's what I was thinking too. The fact that memory usage slowly grows until the OS kills it is not good. The files I am processing have fairly short lines and it processes the files line by line in a loop. All of the variables inside that loop should be "reusing" the same space, right? Otherwise, what is the point of scoping at all.
