Display memory usage during a game

Hey folks,

I'm just wondering, is there a way to tell how much RAM or any other memory is being used while playing a game? Is there some way I can display the RAM used on the main display next to the CPU and FPS displays?

Just sheer curiosity that's all.

It would not be that useful.

1) Most games take over the system and use their own allocation systems (this includes whdload).
2) You can use custom memory allocation system in AmigaOS.
3) Emulator can't reliably know when it is safe to read memory allocation structures.
4) Running OS may not be AmigaOS.
