RAM Status

    Sep 01 2008 | 10:40 pm
    I was just wondering that is it possible to learn Ram Status in Max? (In example free, wired and active memory)
    If I am not wrong, Adstatus or dspState objects don't have any feature to show the ram status (double checked from the referance manual)
    Thanks in advance,
    Mehmet Can Ozer
    ps: I am on Mac, OS X 10.5.4 and Max 5.0.4

      I think it is possible using [shell] by Bill Orcut (Mac only). I think it was Jeremy Bernstein that made an UB version of this brilliant external...
      Maybe you can get some ideas from this patch I made a loooong time ago:

      Thanks a lot for patches. All I needed was the "shell" object. I could only find C extension and help file (from maxobjects.com). Do you know where can I get this object?
      Is yours working fine on Max 5 also?
