my program keeps allocating memory?

Thanks

If you are using the gc then compile with -profile=gc. Which will generate a file that logs all gc allocations. On exiting the program normally. So make sure you can exit via a keypress or after a timelimit has passed. If you are using malloc / calloc / free you'll have to use a tool like valgrind.

This will not displays number of deallocations. And problem is usually with the fact that something is allocated but not deallocated by GC for some reason.

I always use "valgrind --tool=massif" + "massif-visualizer".
Gives me a nice timeline allowing to find quickly who the big 
memory consumers (allocation sites) are.
