Composing Special Memory Allocators in C++

Keith Loepere
Open Group Research Institute


The nature of complex, high performance system software imposes constraints on the nature and operation of memory allocation or requires special properties to be true for the memory. Often multiple constraints or properties must hold at once. It is desirable to express these constraints and properties as classes and methods. This paper presents a technique for expressing and composing special memory allocation mechanisms in C++.
