Thanks for the mamories

Of course. I expect to see a memory increase every time an object is added,
until the GC destroys it.

I was wondering if there are any practical or theoretical limits, or am I
only limited by available system resources?

How much memory can I burn in ruby? Am I only limited by RAM + Swap on

Imagine that I write :

100000.times do
a = XML::SaxParser.new
GC.start
end

Do you accept to see the memory increase ?
