Acogc is a simple garbage collector. It can coexist with other allocation strategies, as it is implemented on top of malloc/free. It uses a stop-and-copy algorithm. Its main goal is to be small and embeddable, not to be fast. It provides accurate cooperative collection, so the user has to supply custom marker functions for objects and must tag references on the stack manually. Swept objects are not destroyed, but are pooled in a free-queue and for faster reallocation. Weak references to swept objects can reinstantiate the object.
