A generation number.
The amount (in bytes) by which the generation is to be enlarged.
bytes. If possible, an existing segment in generation
is enlarged, otherwise a new segment of size
is added to the generation.
is most useful in non-interactive applications, where relatively long GC delays are not a problem. In this case, enlarging generations 0 and 1 by several Mb may improve the overall performance of the GC.
is implemented only in 32-bit LispWorks. It is not relevant to the Memory Management API in 64-bit implementations. In 64-bit implementations you can use set-default-segment-size.
