  • $\begingroup$ This seems to be more about Python programing than about Blender or its Python API. I think it should be considered off-topic on Blender Stack Exchange. I think memory allocation may be different in different Python interpreters or versions, but you should ask this on platforms oriented more to programming to get a more competent answer. Stack Overflow may be a better place for this question. $\endgroup$ – Martin Z Jan 4 at 11:44

  • $\begingroup$ It seems this might not be something that Blender is doing differently but something that most different Python implementations and versions do. I think it might be better answered elsewhere as well. Are there any situations where this kind of information might be useful to Blender users that I am missing? $\endgroup$ – Martin Z Jan 4 at 12:13
  • $\begingroup$ Martin Z I hesitate to delete the question. Maybe, let the community decides. $\endgroup$ – Oleksiy Plotnyts'kyy Jan 4 at 12:37
