Garbage Collection ------------------ Till now I haven't made great efforts for the garbage collector (just linked in Boehm's collector. Maybe I won't do since it seems quite efficient (but then, I haven't yet done realistic tests; only tests/ivars.lg and tests/lvars.lg, where all objects die very soon). The following environment variables may be interesting export GC_PRINT_STATS=1 reports GC activity export GC_DONT_GC=1 Together with the first option: shows complete memory need. Note: A faster solution would probably be to use a compacting collector for the youngest generation, and something else for older inhabitants (e.g. Boehm collector; train-collector, ..).
