Book Description – The Garbage Collection Handbook

The Garbage Collection Handbook – Recent improvements in hardware and software have created new issues for garbage collection, which are addressed in this book. It investigates the implications of these modifications for high-performance garbage collector designers and implementers. The book covers parallel, incremental, concurrent, and real-time garbage collection, as well as simple and classic algorithms. Pseudocode and visuals are frequently used to describe algorithms and concepts.

Modern programming languages have practically universally adopted garbage collection, making a full understanding of this topic vital for any programmer. This authoritative handbook provides a comprehensive insight into how various collectors perform as well as the numerous difficulties that garbage collectors are now experiencing. With this knowledge, programmers may securely choose and configure garbage collectors from a wide range of options.

  • The sequel to the 1996 book is complete, up-to-date, and authoritative.
  • Provides comprehensive coverage of garbage collection methods that are parallel, concurrent, and real-time.
  • Explains some of the more difficult parts of garbage collection, such as the run-time system’s interface.
  • Supported by a comprehensive online archive of over 2,500 publications on garbage collection
