Hi all,

Who can my explain the difference between the follewing functions

	gc_malloc		\
	gc_free			|
	gc_malloc_fixed		|	gc-incremental.c file
	gc_realloc_fixed 	|	
	gc_attach		|
	gc_reattach		/

	gc_heap_malloc		\
	gc_heap_free		|	gc-men.c file
	gc_heap_isobject	/	

Which are garbage collected and which don't? 
When the heap management is based on the sbrk function via the define
HAVE_SBRK. Why use KAFFE still the functions malloc and calloc in the
files Class.c, ClassLoader.c, File.c, main.c and Array.c.
