- Subject: Garbage collection in front ends
I'm trying to write an experimental front end for GCC 3.x to learn more
about the interaction of front ends with the back end. I wish to apply
whatever I learn from this mini-project to G95.
I know GCC uses GC internally since 3.0, so I was looking for
documentation about this, but apparently it's not there (yet), and the
comment in ggc* is, well, sparse... Also, it seems that GCC GC is on the
move again, with the work Geoff Keating is doing on the pch-branch.
So my question is: Where can I find documentation about GCC's garbage
collector? And it would be really nice if somebody could tell what
changes can we expect in the upcoming, say, 6 months?
