Hi all,

[ruby-dev:18427] shrink memory

  Hidetoshi Nagai asked a way to shrink memory occupied by process, since occupied
  memory was monotonously increasing despite Tcl/Tk could shrink occupied memory.
  Matz answered that there was no portable way in C to return memory to OS. However,
  He tried to free a block of the heap, so the process memory will be shrinked in
  case that malloc/free will have the facility of returning memory to OS.
