[gclist] Experience with conservative GC sought
Thu, 22 Jan 1998 20:21:40 -0500
My present SCWM heap has 40k objects allocated, of 98k available. One
object is an eight-byte cell, which may point to additional storage if
it represents a string, a vector, etc. Only the cells are relevant to
conservative GC issues. So it's small. And I'm not doing heavy work
My Emacs heap has, in comparison, ~224k objects.
David Love suggested that I simply retrofit Emacs with a GJC-style
collector and see what happens. This seems quite doable. Deciding
exactly what to instrument would be interesting, though.
