I'd like to be able to dedicate a certain amount of memory/ram to mushclient - I run mushclient on my PC 24/7 and I have 380MB ram, id like to give it a certain amount that would be efficient for 8 worlds with constant output and usage.

How can this be done? I want to do this so that they will always have enough ram..

With modern operating systems that use Virtual Memory, I am not aware (under Windows at least) of ways of allocating a "parcel" of memory to one program.

Each program will take what it wants, if necessary "paging" infrequently-used memory to disk, so the sum of memory used on your system may well exceed 380 Mb.

Unless you have monster scripts that use large arrays, probably the most memory used by MUSHclient would be the output window for each world (scrollback buffer). You can use the "Info" configuration window for each world to work out how much it is using.

Then I would adjust the number of lines in your output buffer (for each world) so that the amount of memory used (when multiplied by 8) is roughly the amount you want the whole program to take.
