A while ago, I sat down to write a few allocators for C++ objects and/or STL containers. That is, inspired by an article on STL-compatible allocators, I sat down to write one such allocator, but made it possible to feed it memory from a variety of what I chose to call pools. One such pool I modelled after what I dimly recall having read in the code of Python‘s allocator.
You can find all of that effort in the memory sub-directory in fhtagn!’s trunk — but more important than code, right now, is another question: why should I be interested?
