I'm not a compiler writer (though I do read this group regularly...yes, I
get left behing with moderate frequency :), however, I'm interested in the
possibility of implementing scavenging garbage collection in C++ classes.
I realize that there's no way to make it totally transparent to programmers
without compiler support, but I'm curious about just how close one can get
and whether the resulting classes would be easy enough to use that there
would be a win for programmers.
So, I am hoping to get references to introductory articles on garbage

[Daniel Ross Edelson (email@example.com) wrote a long paper, probably his
thesis, on the topic of garbage collected C++. A postscript version can be
FTPed from midgard.cs.edu:~ftp/pub/tr/ucsc-crl-91-19.ps.Z. It's fairly long,
106 pages including all the source code. -John]
