This is the wrong mailing list.  The gcc-help mailing list is for
questions about the gcc compiler.  You are likely to get a better
answer if you ask on a forum for whichever operating system you are

If you happen to be using GNU/Linux, then I think you can pull this
out of /proc/self/stat or /proc/self/statm, but I don't know the
format of those files.
