Dear members,

As I mentionned in an earlier email to the list (improperly entitled),
I am trying to use LibertyEiffel on a low end system (32-bit, 64K
heap). In that email, I raised the issue of I/O that seem to require
"large" buffers, whereas I would like none or very small ones.

The other issue I would like to bring to your kind attention here is
the garbage collector. Since memory size is the first constraint for
me, I would like to trigger collections more often and on lower
thresholds. Currently, I tried to patch the values of RSOC_LIMIT and
FSOC_LIMIT, but I do not fully understand the effects of my

Would someone be knowledgeable enough to enlighten my way?


PS The option [-boost] has already a positive effect on the size of
the C code (which I compile with a modified version of GCC).
