Register a GC factory under the given name. This function must be called from a C constructor before druntime is initialized.

void registerGCFactory (
  string name,
  core.gc.gcinterface.GC function() factory
) nothrow @nogc;

To use the registered GC, it's name must be specified gcopt runtime option, e.g. by passing , --DRT-gcopt=gc:my_gc_name as application argument.


name name of the GC implementation; should be unique
factory function to instantiate the implementation


The registry does not perform synchronization, as registration is assumed to be executed serially, as is the case for C constructors.
