Is there any way to destroy variables used in an script when I dont need
Is this on some low-memory device? I wonder if it is possible that
you are allocating memory faster than the garbage collector can
reclaim it. Although I wouldn't expect "a=math.random(1,20)" and
"math.random(1,20)" to be significantly different as far as memory
allocation is concerned.
