Subject RE: Re: [DRLVM] GC heap verification infrastructure
Date Tue, 18 Jul 2006 12:34:18 GMT
Hi, 
I didn't find any bugs in gc_v4 at the moment,
but this feature is really very useful especially if
you modify gc_v4 or design a new gc. Of course, it needs to 
be improved and developed.

Also I'm going to add feature to verify write barriers work. 
The same way as in GC heap verification I use idea to
hijack interface function concerning write barriers.

This patch will be sent a bit later.

Pleased to hear from you, Vera :)!

cool feature! did you find any bugs in DRLVM while testing?
do you have plans/ideas for future development of the tool?
