Proposal to package C/C++ garbage collector
I propose to package the C/C++ garbage collector, gc, by Hans-J. Boehm and
Alan Demers, which is described as `...a garbage collecting storage allocator
that is intended to be used as a plug-in replacement for C's malloc.'
I need this to provide garbage collection for smalleiffel, but it may be
useful to others as well.
Please shout if anyone else is already working on it.
The names `gc', or `libgc' seem likely to cause confusion, so I propose to
call the package `boehmgc'. The actual library, though, will be libgc.so or
libgc.a. Comments, please?
