Today I spent almost all the day trying to build some samples with both the conservative Boehm and the Electrical Fire's generational garbage collectors. With the first, which is conservative and uses a mark and sweep algorithm, I could do a small example and looks easy to use. With the second (the one from the Electrical fire project) I couldn't build it, because of the old and bad Make files (it looks like they are not updated).
However, the papers I've found on google don't satisfy me, and I'm thinking I should buy a book about GC written by Richard Jones. So, if you want to contribute, you can give $ 0.1 and with 800 person helping me I will be able to buy that book ;-).
