Incremental copying garbage collection for WAM-based Prolog systems

Abstract

We present an incremental copying garbage collector for the heap in WAM-based Prolog systems. We describe a heap layout in which the heap is divided in a number of equal-sized blocks. Other changes to the standard WAM allow to garbage collect these blocks independently from each other. Independent collection of heap blocks is the basis of our incremental… (More)
