Automatically reclaim memory from leaky programs
Authored by: LordGilman on Apr 11, '12 09:02:39AM

The purge command (see http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man8/purge.8.html ) has nothing to do with leaky software. I strongly urge you to take down this hint as it does not do what it promises to do in the title and in most situations will only make things slower at a later time.
