There is a lot of efforts to improve CPU time, but what about memory usage?


Compared to C versions:
mandelbrot requires 18x memory
k-nucleotide requires 13x memory
reverse-complement requires 4.9x memory

The main problem is with k-nucleotide, that requires a total of 
2,920,980 KB!


For mandelbrot there is an alternate version with better memory and CPU
