Boost Memory Library: boost-memory-0.1.00

What is new?

  1. Lock-free free list.
  2. Provide both region allocators (boost::auto_alloc, boost::scoped_alloc) and general-purpose allocators (boost::gc_alloc).


  1. Allocating memory is very fast.
  2. No memory leaks. No need to delete objects manually. Or forgetting to delete objects is allowed.

What is boost-memory?

It provides allocators named "GC Allocator". Note "GC Allocator" isn't GC.

GC Allocator is different from STL Allocator. The following is minimum specification for GC Allocator:

typedef void (*DestructorType)(void* data);
concept GCAllocator
    // Allocate memory without given a cleanup function
    void* allocate(size_t cb);
    // Allocate memory with a cleanup function
    void* allocate(size_t cb, DestructorType fn);
    // Cleanup and deallocate all allocated memory by this GC Allocator
    void clear();
    // Swap two GCAllocator instances
    void swap(GCAllocator& o);
