[Coco] MyRam vs, Rammer

 I've been using "MyRam" for about 6 years now and had little if no problems. I was originally using Rammer, but had it crash my system several times, hence why I switched to MyRam. But, that was back when the repo was in limbo and was suffering from an incomplete switch from Toolshed to LWTools as well as from CVS to Mercurial, so there were problems with anything in the repo at the time. Rammer may well be stable now.
The thing I like about MyRam is the ability to shut it down on the fly to get memory back or restart it with a different size while running... no reboot required. Also MyRam needs no "iniz" or "init"... just run it. if you do a "dir /r0" and MyRam hasn't been initialized, it immediately inits itself, then formats itself before displaying the dir. To stop it, just "deiniz /r0" (for some reason, sometimes I have to do this twice) and it's gone with memory returned to OS-9. To change the size, first "deiniz /r0", then "dmode /r0 sct=xxxx" then "dir /r0" and it's ready. Couldn't get much easier than that!
