Dynamic Space Reigned In

I haven't been doing much coding lately, it's been mostly documentation and design work for me. But there are a few things I've seen in comp.lang.lisp I wanted to make note of here so I would remember them later.

Raymond Toy posted a way to determine cmucl's dynamic space size:

> Try the following:
> * (alien:def-alien-variable ("dynamic_space_size" dynamic-space-size) c-call::int)
> * dynamic-space-size

By doing this I learned two things.

  1. The default is 512M of dynamic space.
  2. My attempt to determine the syntax of the -dynamic-space-size command line switch by reading the argument parsing code went off track somewhere; instead of -dynamic-space-size=<n>, it's just -dynamic-space-size <n>.
