Dear All,

I just released the release 0.5 -probably a beta quality release- of
the qish runtime which contains a generational copying garbage
collector (usable from C, in particular with some generated C code).

See http://starynkevitch.net/Basile/qishintro.html and download
http://starynkevitch.net/Basile/qish-0.5.tar.gz

It could interest any people implementing a language in need of a
Garbage Collector. Qish is probably a bit faster than Boehm's GC, but
it is not multithreaded and requires carefully written (or machine
generated) C code -respecting detailed (and documented) coding
conventions.

License is GNU general public license = GPL. I might switch it to LGPL
if so requested.

Comments are welcome. 

regards.
