[gclist] gc for Rotor
Thu, 28 Mar 2002 12:29:39 +0100
Microsoft has made publicly available the sources of CLI,
the Common Language Infrastrucutre for Microsoft .NET.
There are differences from the official commercial implementation,
but for most parts is it believed to be quite close to it
(in particular compilers).
A most notable difference is the garbage collector:
the official one uses a technique for implementing the write
barrier which is not being disclosed.
It might be interesting to work on an alternative implementation
of the GC for CLI.
Given the experiences of people in this group it might be
an interesting undertaking.
Would it make sense to start a discussion on this
and maybe set up a design and implementation team?
