The 'gc' function is undocumented in the manual

SBCL has a function called 'gc', which triggers manual collection of garbage when called, for example, as

(gc :full t)

There is no such function mentioned in the CCL manual. However, the 'gc' function, called as


successfully calls manual collection. I can only guess what parameters this function might have. I suggest documenting it in the manual. I could make a nominal patch, but I don't know what the source for the manual is, nor the build procedure.

Regards, Faheem Mitha

Nominal patch attached.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

An entry for the gc function was added to the manual r15409.

Calling gc just makes a full gc happen as soon as possible. There are no additional parameters.
