Regardless of whether we come up with a general solution (seems of doubtful use to me), linecache really is last-century technology. :-(

Anyway, why do you want this? Is there some cache that's using too much
memory in an app of yours? Or is it more about getting a semi-clean start on the interactive interpreter? Or something different?
Ah, for running a large test suite (like the stdlib's). That makes sense.
From the initial report ("in particular linecache") it seems at least possible that there's really just one cache that's a real issue, in which case there's a pretty obvious fix. (And making it possible to use linecache in a bounded way, instead of all-or-nothing clearing, might be useful for other purposes besides this...) But I don't know if that really is the case; did anyone check whether the 500MB were 90%+ in linecache or anything like that? _______________________________________________ Python-ideas mailing list Pythonemail@example.com https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-ideas Code of Conduct: http://python.org/psf/codeofconduct/
