[AmigaOS 3.1 Command Reference\Avail]
Format: AVAIL [CHIP|FAST|TOTAL] [FLUSH]
Template: CHlP/S, FAST/S, TOTAL/S, FLUSH/S
Purpose: To report the amount of CHIP and FAST memory available.
AVAIL gives a summary of the system RAM, both CHIP and FAST. For each memory
type, AVAIL reports the total amount of memory, how much is available, how
much is currently in use, and the largest contiguous memory block not yet
By using the CHIP, FAST and/or TOTAL options, you can have AVAIL display
only the number of free bytes of CHIP, FAST or TOTAL RAM available, instead
of the complete summary. This value can be used for comparisons in scripts.
The FLUSH option causes all unused libraries, devices, and fonts to be
expunged from memory.
