maximum memory usage of a program


hi

does any of you know whether there is a way to find out the high water mark in memory usage of a program started from the command line.
this program runs for only a very short time, so something along the lines of "time command" for memory would do (e.g. "mem command")

any ideas?

thanks
martin

You could use a profiling tool like Valgrind to do that.
