    Re: memory leakage

    "Memory leakage" is the result of computer memory being acquired from the operating system by a program but never released back to the operating system when that program is finished with it. The result is that, as the program runs, it continues to grow larger and eventually runs into resource issues with the OS.

    Measurement of memory leakage can range from periodic checks of "Mem Usage" in Window's Task Manager Procecess tab to programs such as "BoundChecker" that hook into the program and the OS to monitor memory allocation and freeing directly.
