Hi All,

    I've started working on a new GC for Cog and have a few questions.

1. does anyone have a copy of Joel Bartlett's J. F. Bartlett. A
generational, compacting collector for C++. In E. Jul and N.-C. Juul,
editors, OOPSLA/ECOOP ‘90 Workshop on Garbage Collection in Object-Oriented
Systems, Oct. 1990. ?

2. what's the largest number of classes you've got in your most complex
image and/or what's the largest number of classes you're ever created in an
image?  a.k.a.  is 64k classes enough (16 bits), or is 1m classes enough (24

3. do you have any personal recommendations, or example code, of systems
that combine generation scavenging and/or compaction with object pinning?
