I am going to be running an MCL program on some LC III's
with 4 RAM. I am using a minimal system 7 boot (about 1,200K)
and my application is just small enough to run. However,
there is an excessive amount of GC (with windows being
invalidated to gray).
I am saving the application without the compiler. But I was
wondering if there were any more memory-saving tricks I could
try, or if perhaps (!) there was some way to reduce the amount
of time spend garbage collecting. Specifically, would changing
the heap size of MCL/Lisp affect this? (And how does one do so?)
And how does one make use of EGC?
Many thanks in advance.
