Hi,


What are common techniques for data allocation (strings, high-level
data structures) in interpreters? I could think about:


- malloc / free with trying to free unused data as soon as possible.
- same as above with some custom implementation of malloc / free (which
one?)
- full blown grabage collector.
- somthing hybrid (how?)


What do you think, how is it implemented in the famous interpreters?




Bye
Chris
