Subject Re: [drlvm][gc] What does an Partial_Reveal_Object object represents in GarabageCollector?
Date Thu, 19 Feb 2009 12:23:03 GMT
Yuan,
The intention of this construct is to minimize dependency between gc
and vmcore limiting interfaces to C-type ones. If you changed layout
of fields, you should update GC struct. If you only changed vt
functions, then probably the problem is in other place.

Thanks.
