ENDTYPE

GLOBAL _MyType[] AS MyType

...

   LOCAL t AS MyType
   
   t.a = a
   t.b = b

What type of variable are you referring to that needs memory freed?

Thanks for the replies

Yes, I need something like a "TypeOf(variablename)" type function

If you trying to achieve reflection with GLBASIC, it is going to be difficult but I suppose not impossible.  ;/ IE: If you are trying to find the type of a TYPE(object) during runtime.

Variables are stored as strings or numerals, and likewise inside a TYPE.
Thus, to free the memory of a variable you simply do this:

a$=""
a=0
