Segment Order Preserving and Generational Garbage Collection for Prolog

Kostis Sagonas
Uppsala University

In this talk two important issues in heap garbage collection for WAM-based Prolog systems are going to be treated. First, a new method for preserving the order of heap segments in a copying garbage collector is going to be described. Second, methods for (multi-)generational garbage collection are going to be presented; in particular we are going to show the importance of precise maintenance of generation lines and will propose different and novel ways for its implementation. An experimental evaluation of all methods is also going to be presented.

Despite the technical nature of these results, an attempt to make the talk understandable to a general audience is going to be made.
