Python Free Memory?
Is there a routine that can tell me how much memory Python has?
I'd like both total and free memory if possible. All the solutions I've seen online are for Linux and call routines not available on the Prime.

You could try:
Code:
import gc
gc.collect()
gc.mem_free()

Thanks, but that's an example of what I was talking about. There's no gc library on the Prime. All the routines I've found use libraries or routines not available on Prime.

My prime has the gc library:

Thanks for the example,
I had to learn again, how to enter this commands ;-)
(numeric view, button 'Cmds', scroll down to (A) gc.)

It's working now. I totally reentered the Python program from scratch. I don't know what I did wrong the first time.

Thanks!!

Code:
#PYTHON name
from gc import *
collect()
PRINT(mem_free());
#END
#BEGIN
EXPORT pymem()
BEGIN
  PYTHON(name);
END;
