    Bring your mouse pointer to the very bottom of your screen, right-click, and select Task Manager.

    Select the Processes tab and find your program.

    Task manager will show you the amount of memory in use by process.  In the processes tab, if it isn't showing memory usage, choose View --> Select Columns.

    From within your application, call  getrusage() and check the resident set size.

    From the shell, call 'ps' or 'top' program
