Is there a way to determine how much memory is consumed by strings by a
I'd like to know this, in particular, for FPC ana Lazarus --to begin with.
And, the reason I'd like to know this is this: Whenever I suggest that
char size be increased to 4, the idea gets opposed on the grouds that it
will need huge memory --4 times as much.
There's of course some merit in that arguement, but I have no idea what
it is '4 times' of.
This is not very engineer-like --it being unmeasured.
Can anyone suggest a way to measure the memory load caused by strings?
