Consider adding a WAY
_TOO _MUCH _GC ifdef
I'd like to have an ifdef I can set that would force GC whenever JS_MaybeGC is called. Brendan suggested that this be named WAY_TOO_MUCH_GC and that it also force GC on every allocation attempt. In addition to those, I think the macro should also make nsJSContext::ScriptEvaluated always call JS_MaybeGC. Can that file include jsgc.h? Or would the macro need to go in jsapi.h?
Touching jsapi.h (or jspubtd.h) will cause WAY_TOO_MUCH_RECOMPILING ;-). Just include jsgc.h in nsJSEnvironment.cpp #ifdef NS_DEBUG? Or unconditionally, I'm cool with either way. /be
It's fine with me if it's fine with jst.
bz: are you developing this patch? If so, want to take the bug? /be
Brendan, I don't think I know nearly enough about the JS engine to do the "GC on every allocation attempt" part. I also have no tree until I get back into town on June 30... So I'm not developing anything right now. ;)
Looking for testing buddying as well as review. /be

Oops, that was deadwood. Plus, I added #ifdef NS_DEBUG #include "jsgc.h" // for WAY_TOO_MUCH_GC, if defined for GC debugging #endif to nsJSEnvironment.cpp after the first two groups of #includes, as promised. Fixed on trunk. /be
