Paul Kline told me that you were the person to ask if one had questions
about Interlisp on Sumex. I am working with a knowledge acquisition
system written in Lisp. What I am trying to do is to get an idea
of how much storage each new piece of knowledge takes up in CORE when
it is created. What I thought of doing was to add X pieces of knowledge after
doing a RECLAIM() andf STORAGE() and then do another RECLAIM()
and STORAGE(). However, it seems as though whenever I do a RECLAIM it
somehow thinks I am using more storage even if I did nothing after
the previous RECLAIM except for perhaps a call to STORAGE. i.e.
it says I am using up to 700 words of List space more. If RECLAIM
is doing these wierd things I can't get the statistics I need.
Any suggestions? Thanks, dave.
