freeing memory

Krieger, Donald N.
I have run imagej under several versions of linux.
I notice that the memory allocated when reading in an image series is not released until imagej is terminated.
Is there a way to release memory without termination?

Thanks - Don

Hi Don,

See http://imagej.net/Troubleshooting#OutOfMemoryError

In particular, the "About Java garbage collection" section and "Why does
ImageJ not release any memory back to the system?" sidebar.

Regards,
Curtis
