asmem is a memory utilization monitor.
This is an AfterStep look & feel memory utilization monitor for X Windows.
I used this asmem tool written by alindennetcologne.de for quite a while. It served the purpose but I was very unsatisfied with its appearance. I wanted something that would fit nicely between all other applets on my desktop. I tried to contact the author a few times but got no answer. So I decided to rewrite it from scratch and give it the look and options that I personally like. I hope the author of
the original asmem will not be too angry with me.
The display consists of two areas. The one above shows utilization of the memory, the one below - the utilization of the swap space. Each area contains a graphical bar that represents the percentage of the available space. For the memory utilization
there are three bars: user/system memory used, buffer memory and cache memory. For the swap space only one bar showing the used space. Above each bar is the total amount of space, below the bar - the available space in kbytes and percents. If the
memory amount is above 999999 kbytes the displays switches to Mbytes instead of kbytes.
The program may be used directly or in the Afterstep "wharf". It also supports the WindowMaker docker (-withdrawn option). It may be used in all other window managers as well. It runs well as an icon.

What's New in This Release:
· The last release was missing a return type for one of the functions, basically making the whole update worthless.
