[R] Memory Usage in R

To R users:

I am running an R program with .Fortran() calls, and discovered that the
memory, as reported by gc(), continues to grow with new loop iterations.  I
hadn't been able to find information on how to 'destroy' objects in earlier
loops to keep the program size from continuous growth;  calling rm() to
remove some what I thought to be large arrays didn't seem to help.  Any
help/pointers will be greatly appreciated.  TIA
