I'm trying to understand how the kaffevm is working.
My question is about the INTERPRETER and is related with the GC:
In kaffe.def (the core of the vm) i can see:
move_ref is a macro which does : (t).v.taddr = (f).v.taddr
Why isn't there a write-barrier here ????
(like SOFT_ADDREFERENCE ?)
Thank you for any help,

PS: what about the project of making kaffe GC-customizable ?
has someone news about it?
