 +====== FAQ: How do I run the garbage collector in a macro or plugin? ======
 +
 +**If a macro or plugin runs out of memory, you can force garbage collection.**
 +
 +The Java Virtual Machine does garbage collection automatically as necessary, but this can also be forced at a particular time in a plugin or a macro.
 +
 +In a //macro// use the **call()** function (needs version 1.37e):
 +
 +  call("​java.lang.System.gc"​);​
 +
 +In a //plugin// use the call:
 +
 +  System.gc();​
