Abstract

Hardware-Assisted Garbage Collection for the Icon Programming Language
Ramakrishna Chinta
Hardware-Assisted garbage collection for Icon guarantees real-time response
and consistent performance.  This report describes the changes made to Icon's
run-time system in porting Icon to the hardware-assisted garbage collection
environment and compares the performance of fifty Icon programs using the
traditional and hardware-assisted garbage collection implementations.
Throughput for the hardware-assisted system ranges from 45% slower to
28% faster than the traditional system.  Suggestions for improving the
performance of the hardware-assisted implementation are also discussed.
