Ticket #1605 (closed patch: fixed)
Documentation for buffers in include/parrot/pobj.h is outdated.
|Reported by:||bacek||Owned by:||Paul C. Anagnostopoulos|
After merging compact_pool_revamp branch documentation in pobj.h and gc/alloc_resources.c doesn't reflect reality anymore and require major update.
Basically storage header consists of 3 fields:
- Pointer to Memory_Block* from which it was allocated.
- Buffer_moved_FLAG - set to 1 during compacting when we move shared buffer
- Buffer_shared_FLAG - set to 1 when we share storage between different STRINGs. (Replacement for old PObj_COW_FLAG)
My Englsih-fu is weak for this task but I'll be able to answer questions on IRC or ticket.
