    hi again every1

    thnx to all those who have been answering my doubts here....!
    had another there any way to retrieve the "available or free swap/page file space" in a windows system?
    we can goto start menu->programs->accessories->system tools-> system information and clikc on the system tab to get the required info including virtual mem/ram/amount used/amount free etc but how to retrive all tis memory ..specially the remaining swap space left in our system from the dos prompt or thru a perl script
    Pleaehelp if anyone knows..ive been researching on this the last week but cannot find a result may not benecessary , it can even be got via some calculations involving memory available etc.
    Any code/links etc wud be gr8..
    Im working with windows 2k and NT

    Thnx and someone pleezzzz solve this mystery for me..sometimes i feel unix is so much simpler coz of the easy by which u can execute these dos commands!

    You try and try again..but then give up, there's no sense in being a complete fool about it!!!

    On CPAN there are A LOT of win32 modules, they should provide the solution.
