All<br/>  I was looking for the sources for the purge command that flushes the memory caches . It looks like there is some magic happening here and I can't find it anywhere . <br/><br/>So this stems from a work question about porting some Linux code to FreeBSD that swaps for no good reason .  It was mentioned by a developer they ran purge on their Mac to gain back some free ram that was allocated as buff cache . <br/><br/>Mark
