[gclist] GCC 3.0 and GC?
18 Jun 2001 09:45:23 -0400
New Languages and Language specific improvements:
The GNU Compiler for the Java(TM) language (GCJ) is now integrated and
supported, ... and the Boehm conservative garbage collector.
Other significant improvements: Garbage collection used internally by the
compiler for most memory allocation instead of obstacks.
So does this mean GCC is now using the Bohem conservative collector? Or is
gcc using a different GC internally. I'm generally, curious as to why the
GCC developers decided to take the plunge and adopt GC.
