gc-7.6.0

A conservative garbage collector for C and C++

It can be used as a plug-in replacement for C's malloc as it has value-added memory control functions. Since the collector does not require pointers to be tagged, it does not attempt to ensure that all inaccessible storage is reclaimed but it is usually more successful at reclaiming unused memory than most C programs using explicit deallocation. Unlike manually introduced leaks, the amount of unreclaimed memory typically stays bounded.
