Standard Version: Performs
the Unix "purge" command and quits. The Unix "purge" increases
the "Free" memory ( as shown in Apple's Activity Monitor ---system
memory tab ) by purging the "Inactive" memory. The same thing
could be done by entering the purge command in a Terminal window.
Having the app on the desktop is more convenient than opening
terminal. Double click the app to run it. It runs
and quits; There is no user interface.
Background Only Version:
When launched it runs in the background ( not visible in dock ) and
issues the "purge" command every hour. Otherwise, it does the same
thing as the standard version. It can be quit via Apple's Activity Monitor
