View as plain text  
Thanks for your replies, Bill and Warren.

I can confirm that I am using Windows Task Manager and MS Visual C++  

Although I take the point about Windows Task manager Including OS  
buffers etc, programs can be written with stable memory usage, and my  
program using mysql is not one of them.

The problem appears not to be a 'leak' as in unreferenced memory, but  
excessive usage.
Perhaps the mysql client api maintains it's own memory pool for some  
performance reasons etc.

Thanks for the link to the archives Bill, I didn't search for memory  
leaks, only for memory usage.
