The IA-64, Intel's 64-bit instruction set architecture, exhibits a number of interesting architectural features. Here we consider those features as they relate to supporting garbage collection (GC). We aim to assist GC and compiler implementors by describing how one may exploit features of the IA-64. Along the way, we record some previously unpublished object scanning techniques, and offer novel ones for object allocation (suggesting some simple operating system support that would simplify it)doi:10.1145/362422.362470 dblp:conf/iwmm/HudsonMSW00 fatcat:l323frtlbzawlpaym5eitk5sqa
