Andrei, you made my day :)

I will be late for my next meeting, but I see the image to shrink! Thanks!

By any chance, do you have a fix for my already big image?

Hi Jan,

Can you try again in the latest moose image.

I just fixed a bug related to that.

It is a known problem in the Pharo 5 image due to spur migration.

The memory is released but the image file is not reduced at saving time.

Objet : [Moose-dev] Moose image does not shrink


If I download latest and greatest moose image and latest and greatest VM for linux, I evaluate this code:


nil asParser star parse: 'b'



That leads to an infinite loop and I terminate after a few seconds using ctrl + . my image grows to approximately 500MB.


The problem is, if I close all the windows, call Smalltalk garbageCollect as many times as I want, the image is still 500MB (or 1.2GB in my real-case scenario).
