Our research is concerned with compiler-independent, eecient and convenient garbage collection for C++. Most collectors proposed for C++ have either been implemented in a library or in a compiler. As an intermediate step between those two, this paper proposes using precompilation techniques to augment a C++ source program with code to allow mostly(More)
Our research is concerned with compiler-independent, tag-free garbage collection for the C++ programming language. We have previously presented a copying collector based on root registration. This paper presents a mark-and-sweep garbage collector that ameliorates shortcomings of the previous collector. We describe the two collectors and discuss why the new(More)
Our research is concerned with compiler-independent, tag-free garbage collection for the C ++ programming language. This paper presents a mark-and-sweep collector , and explains how it ameliorates shortcomings of a previous copy collector. The new collector, like the old, uses C ++ 's facilities for creating abstract data types to deene a tracked reference(More)
Foreword While computers are expensive to operate, programmers are also expensive to employ. Methodologies which increase the productiveness of computer programmers are in demand. Object oriented programming uses the programmer's resources (time, intelligence, creativity) efficiently. For this reason these mechanisms and the languages and hardware which(More)
