[New-bugs-announce] [issue1405] Garbage collection not working correctly in Python 2.3
report at bugs.python.org
Thu Nov 8 17:31:30 CET 2007
New submission from Stefan Sonnenberg-Carstens:
when running this script:
aList = 
for i in xrange(5E5):
aList += []
for j in xrange(10):
It does not give back the memory
afterwards does not do it.
In Python 2.5 the memory is freed again correctly, at least under Windows.
The problem came up, because I was parsing a CSV file of 50 MB which
resulted in memory usage of more than 500 MB.
