Attempts to promote all objects from generation zero into generation one, thereby clearing generation zero, in 32-bit LispWorks.
clean-generation-0 => 1
Returns the value 1.
This is useful when passing from a phase of creating long-lived data to a phase of mostly ephemeral data, for example, the end of loading an application and the start of its use.
Note: The function may not be very useful, as it may be more efficient to directly allocate the objects in a particular generation in the first place, using allocation-in-gen-num or set-default-generation.
is implemented only in 32-bit LispWorks. It is not relevant to the Memory Management API in 64-bit implementations, where the same effect can be obtained by a call
; allocate lots of non-ephemeral objects
