HeapShot - New Memory Profiler

by Miguel de Icaza

Lluis checked-in last week a new memory profiler for Mono applications.

He originally created this profiler based on `heap-buddy', while trying to understand memory consumption in MonoDevelop. I used it last week to trim down 340k of Tomboy memory consumption (removed a Hashtable that contained bools).

If you are a Mono application developer, you will find this tool very helpful in finding where your memory is going. It will look your app look better (and Mono look better ;-)

Joe and Larry will hopefully be pleased.

The profiler lives in module `heap-shot' on SVN.
