Feature #2837

Updated by nahi (Hiroshi Nakamura) about 8 years ago

  The GC currently increases the size at which newly-created heaps by a factor of 1.8 for each heap.    Some find it appropriate to modify this value (REE uses a value of 1 instead of 1.8, for example).    In the trunk version of this code, that value is hard-coded in as a constant at 1.8 in gc.c:980. 
  I've included a patch to expose this as a compile-time constant (HEAP_GROW_FACTOR), and also included getters and setters in the style of the patch I submitted in Issue 1047: .
