Clear Free Memory
I have a laptop that was given to me to use for work. I do not have many funds right now, so at home I boot Knoppix on the notebook.
For some reason I feel like my company might take a peek at the remaining data left in memory on bootup. So my question is: how can I clear the linux system memory?
Is there any command line tools that might help me do this?
I have been thinking that I increase the heap size available to Java applications, then writing a Java application that will create an array the size of the free memory, and then setting the entire array to null or something.
However, this will require that I copy the file from some networked location, compile it locally, etc. I feel like I'm running through a lot of hoops.
Is there any easier way?
Thanks for any tips.
