use "top" and see what exactly is using it all weater it's the interpreter (wish i think?), amsn, whatever else, just sort the output by mem useage and see what's sucking it all up, cuz im tending to think wish could be doing it.

Thank you. I have tried "top", but the sum of the mem usage which list in detail is only less then 200M but actually totally usage is about 400M. Yes, "wish" cost me 150M.
