MacMem is a simple gem that gets the current memory usage of your Ruby process in Mac OS X.

Since apparently the only way to get memory usage in Ruby is calling the ps shell command, I built this around proc_pidinfo in an attempt to do things in a cleaner way. My hope is that somebody builds a better, multiplatform Gem for this task.

Beware that my implementation, ableit simple, might be imperfect.


require 'macmem'

puts macmem   # prints the memory usage in kbytes.
