Can anyone tell me how to create a program as memory efficient as possible.
Do you need to create all objects in code to do this?
Are there any more ways than, Free, FreeAndNil etc to release memory once
my program has finished with it.
I have a program that has a timer and every 10 seconds it runs code to process instructions on a database. I use query's to access the data and also to update my data. But as my program runs, which is 24/7, I can see the Mem Usage in Task Manager slowly accumulating over time. I create all my query's in code and free them up once im finished so I am struggling to think why this memory is accumulating over time.
I am using Delphi 5 Pro and my app is a standard windows exe.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
