Dear All,


I just released the release 0.6 -probably a beta quality release- of
the qish runtime which contains a generational copying garbage
collector (usable from C, in particular with some generated C code).


See http://starynkevitch.net/Basile/qishintro.html and download
http://starynkevitch.net/Basile/qish-0.6.tar.gz


It could interest any people implementing a language in need of a
Garbage Collector. Qish is probably a bit faster than Boehm's GC, but
it is not multithreaded and requires carefully written (or machine
generated) C code -respecting detailed (and documented) coding
conventions.


License is GNU lesser general public license = LGPL.


Changes (w.r.t. previous release 0.5 of december 03rd 2002)
    should be compilable (with -DSTRICT_C99) on any ISOC99 compiler
    better documentation
    switched to LGPL license
    thanks to Fergus Henderson for comments & small patch.


Comments are welcome.


PS: beware of antispam device in reply adress.
