# for gc.c

#  The GC module provides an interface to Ruby's mark and
#  sweep garbage collection mechanism.
#
#  Some of the underlying methods are also available via the ObjectSpace
#  module.
#
#  You may obtain information about the operation of the GC through
#  GC::Profiler.

  #
  #  This method is defined with keyword arguments that default to true:
  #
  #     def GC.start(full_mark: true, immediate_sweep: true); end
  #
  #  Use full_mark: false to perform a minor GC.
  #  Use immediate_sweep: false to defer sweeping (use lazy sweep).

  #  are not guaranteed to be future-compatible, and may be ignored if the
