Lib GC 7.2
Description: Garbage collector library used by the Mesham runtime library.
Version: 7.2
Released: May 2012
Author: Hans Boehm


The default runtime library uses the Boehm-Demers-Weiser conservative garbage collector. It allows one to allocate memory, without explicitly deallocating it when it is no longer useful. The collector automatically recycles memory when it determines that it can no longer be otherwise accessed.


We provide a download link 64 bit here and 32 bit here to precompiled library versions of this which is all that is required to use Mesham. We suggest you use these provided, precompiled forms as they have been tested with Mesham. It is likely that future versions (later than 7.2) will work fine although they might not necessarily have been tested.

You can access further information, documentation and download the latest source code from the project website here.
