Since the collector does not require pointers to be tagged, it does not attempt to ensure that all inaccessible storage is reclaimed. However it has typically been more successful at reclaiming unused memory than most C programs using explicit deallocation. Unlike manually introduced leaks, the amount of unreclaimed memory typically stays bounded.
This version of the collector is thread safe, has C++ support, and uses the defaults for everything else. Particularly, it does not work as a malloc() replacement.
This is an attempt to acknowledge early contributions to the garbage collector. Later contributions should instead be mentioned in README.changes. HISTORY - Early versions of this collector were developed as a part of research projects supported in part by the National Science Foundation and the Defense Advance Research Projects Agency. The garbage collector originated as part of the run-tim more»
