a solution i found for solving this problem was
for f in index: d = parser_file.MyParser.parse(f)
#Now do everything you want to do with the parsed information reload(mymodule.parser_file)
The python buildin reload for modules seems to be cleaning up the reference stuff holding by the parser.
I can't see why it should. Could you make sure you are talking about the same issue as discussed in this thread?
I don’t have the beginning of the thread, but it looks like the module reloading is only a convoluted way to release the last reference to the parser object.
So the question is: does parsing many files with the same parser object leak memory, compared to creating a parser object every time and releasing it? (Of course, having the rest of the code would help.)
