Is this considered ordinary? How do I avoid lots of fragmentations? My
game is using lua scripts extensively, including many non-permanent
small string, small table and closure creation in every frame cycle.
It you grab the latest F4 snapshot (located at
http://www.379.com/f4), you can pull out the memory manager I'm
using. It "pools" < 4K allocations together into larger pages,
avoiding memory fragmentation. You can also see how I patched the
Lua code to use it. It's also a lot faster than the std mem
operators. I don't notice the Lua gc blips in my development code
any more, though I'm still scaling up the content.
