Subject Re: Need info on copy-on-write support on Harmony
Date Sun, 06 Apr 2008 11:27:59 GMT
Hi Alexei,

This issue came up when I was trying to match interfaces of Harmony GC_Gen
and Parrot. It seems that the Parrot GC is aware on whether COW is used.

ex:- clear_cow, used_cow in dod.h

It seems that it maintains a COW ref count etc.

Regards,
Senaka
