Feature #10197

document RUBY_* stack size/GC params in ruby.1 manpage

Added by normalperson (Eric Wong) over 5 years ago. Updated over 5 years ago.

Target version:


Good idea or too implementation/internals-dependent?
We can note it is implementation-dependent behavior in the manpage.
I can prepare patches based on existing NEWS-* files.

Most of environemnt variables should be implementation dependent.

I recommend you to use comment in gc.c:

Maybe on 2.2 I will add some more variables.

Work-in-progress here with *_STACK_SIZE.
I added a header section hopefully clarifying the difference between
VM vs. machine stack size changes.

This manpage feels a bit long, I think the FEATURES section should be moved to a
new ruby(7) manpage. Perhaps these new tuning variables should also be
moved to a ruby_tuning(7) variable for longer explanations

man/ruby.1: document stack size env variables

[Feature #10197]

Updated by normalperson (Eric Wong) over 5 years ago

Committed GC stuff as r48855, hopefully this all makes sense to people
who are not familiar with Ruby internals.
