"Are you running out of memory or something?"
Yes. I am getting out of memory messages. My pc still has more memory available, but Maxima is not able to use it for
some reason. I have processes that when they are running are using up 300-400 MBytes. When they finish and I release
all of the variables and arrays the memory still is showing 300-400 MBytes in use. I have to do many step processes one
step one at a time and save the results to a file using stringout(). Then I read in the file and go on to the next step
with a fresh restart of Maxima.
I am using GCL which does not have the GC command. I am still looking for the right garbage. (Apropos 'garbage) bring
up a lot of stuff but I am not sure which one is the one I want, if any. All the "command's" that come up actually are
not commands at all. I don't know what they are. There is something called "garbage", it is not a command.
