Incremental incrementally compacting garbage collection
Papers of the Symposium on Interpreters and interpretive techniques - SIGPLAN '87
A mixed-strategy garbage collection algorithm is presented, which combines markand-sweep and copy collection. The intent is to benefit from the compacting and linearizing properties of copy collection without losing computational use of half the memory. The stopand-collect version of the algorithm is a simple and cheap technique to fight memory fragmentation. The collection strategy may be dynamically adapted to minimize the cost of collection, according to the amount of memory actuallydoi:10.1145/29650.29677 dblp:conf/pldi/LangD87 fatcat:6zojccpm5fca7bk7gyu3vwsm5i
