[Tutor] Memory optimization problem

I have been working on a search engine, which is a memory hog. I 
originally had it use a hashtable to keep a histogram of occurrences for 
words for files, then optimized that to a binary searched tuple of 
integer pairs... I couldn't see any improvement. It seems to take more 
memory than the files loaded.

Do you have any suggestions for what I might look for that's hogging memory?
