Hi Sean, Thanks for looking at this. However, your suggestion actually made things worse. Now, my memory usage increases each time I "run" example a, as well as example b. Is this problem related to my version/platform of Mathematica? Does anyone know of an equivalent for "ls -l" that I could run on Mathematica to track down the memory hog? I tried several things, but it looks like this memory is out of my reach. For example, (* begin *) objects = Names[]; sizes = Table[ByteCount[objects[[i]]], {i, Length[objects]}]; Total[sizes] (* end *) Running this code snippet doesn't show any increase in the memory used by my objects, even though MemoryInUse[] does. Therefore, I want to know, where is my memory going? Later, Daniel
