I'm writing a kernel that has cooperative multi-tasking. It works great, but one job of it is to track a process' memory usage. It can track more memory being used but If the coroutine sets a bunch of stuff to nil, it should be able to subtract the difference as well. However sometimes the garbage collector might not get around to freeing it by the time the test is performed leading to an inaccurate result. Is there some way of forcing a garbage collector cycle?
