Resource query and control

,time exp
Measure execution time.
Invoke the garbage collector. Ordinarily this happens automatically, but the command tells how much space is available before and after the collection.
,keep kind
,flush kind
These control the amount of debugging information retained after compiling procedures. This information can consume a fair amount of space. kind is one of the following: These commands refer to future compilations only, not to procedures that already exist. To have any effect, they must be done before programs are loaded. The default is to keep all four types.
The flush command with no argument deletes the database of names of initial procedures. Doing ,flush before a ,build or ,dump will make the resulting image significantly smaller, but will compromise the information content of many error messages.
