GeneralSome thoughts on the .net CLR/CLI Pin

I've always been kind of bummed about the universal garbage collection in .NET because you can't do realtime coding with a GC running in the background.

What I'd have liked to see, at the very least, is a segregated heap that wasn't collected, and an ability to suspend background collection.

You can kind of hack something like it into there using the large object heap and also using .NET 4+'s ability to reserve heap and suspend GC but it's non-optimal.

See, I'd really like to write VST plugins in C# for example, and while there are offerings to do so, they are not realtime. They are kinda realtime. Not good enough for live music performance.

Instead I'm forced to do it in something like C++ or *gasp* Delphi, which is costlier/more time consuming to write solid code with.


I'd be okay with C# code blocks (similar to unsafe) where realtime code could run but apparently that's too much to ask.

Also, I love garbage collection. Don't get me wrong. I even used it in C++ ISAPI server apps (using Boehm collector) for my strings in order to avoid heap fragmentation - in the right areas it can even improve performance.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
