GCC follows the platform-specific ABI, so look at your
platform´s ABI documentation.

But this is the GC (garbage collection) list, not the GCC list.
If you want to ask questions about GCC (The GNU Compiler Collection)
or about the GNU C compiler, try the gnu.gcc.help newsgroup.

If you are asking about how to scan the stack for garbage collection
when compiling via GNU C, then you may find the following paper of mine
useful: "Accurate garbage collection in an uncooperative environment¨, ISMM´02.
This also has further references to related work, e.g. Boehm et al´s
conservative collector.
