A Simple Approach to Supporting Untagged Objects in Dynamically Typed Languages

Abstract

In many modern high-level programming languages, the exact low-level representation of data objects cannot always be predicted at compile time. Implementations usually get around this problem using descriptors (\tags") and/or indirect (\boxed") representations. However, the exibility so gained can come at the cost of signiicant performance overheads. The… (More)
