ESP8266 Memory Usage

debugGlen Cook has just made a neat little utility for checking the amount of RAM in Eclipse projects…  here’s the output – and there’s a link below – contact Glen, not me for more info.

Part of the problem of working with new processors – is understanding what is being used and where.  I look forward to seeing a visual version of this with used RAM, FLASH etc. and showing what’s used and what’s left. It would not be the first time I’ve run out of RAM.

Does anyone know the significance of the IRAM (initialised RAM) as in one project I’m down to 800 bytes – while having 38K of general RAM left.
