Importance of Memory Allocation and Disk Representation In Specific Based Regression |
Memoryallocation is required in all phases of design. It typically consists of onlytwo operations: the allocation of a specified amount of unused memory and thefreeing of an allocated block. Some systems reduce this to a single operationthat allocates on demand and frees automatically when the object is no longerused. Special garbage-collection operationsfind the unused memory by counting the number of references to each block[Deutsch and Bobrow].
