Chrishart,

My advice would be to get a product like Memory Sleuth or BoundsChecker. I use both of these tools and they tell you almost to a T where, when and how much memory/resources, etc are available as well as what resources were not freed. I worthwhile investment if your into serious Delphi programming.

On the cheap, writing a small program to access the Windows API environment functions would also work to show you how much memory, hard disk space, system resources, etc are being used before, during and after the program. If the start values and end values don't match then that indicates your program consumed "something" and didn't get it back.

Good luck with your project!
