An implementation of storage management in capability environments

Paolo Corsini, Lanfranco Lopriore
1995 Software, Practice & Experience  
In this paper, we present an approach to the management of a large virtual memory space aimed at solving these problems.  ...  The exploitation of the salient features of capability-based addressing environments leads to a high number of small objects existing in memory at the same time.  ...  The operations of a primitive type are implemented by software routines, in the same way as those of an extended type.  ...
