Hi all,
           while reading GC documentation, I came to know that gc
supports incremental garbage collection through api
GC_enable_incremental (). However, I  could not get detail information
about algorithm and implementation. So here goes my doubts.

1. Which incremental algorithm is implemented in gc ?
2. Does it use read barrier or write barrier? And how  barrier is implemented ?

Thank you in advance.
