Glad the link was of help, it definitely helped me gain an understanding of
how the garbage collector does its magic!
I was contemplating implementing the four-color GC at some future point so
I could learn more about the GC, however, since the current GC works good
enough for now it's a low priority goal.
What is your need for running in a real-time environment? I do not have
much experience with real-time operating systems, but it does sound like
an interesting environment to work in.
