Summary 0007459: [Vm-dev] Image file loading
Description Subject: Image file loading
Date: Tue, 19 Jan 2010 14:06:00 -0800
From: Andreas Raab <>

Proposed by Andreas on vm-dev (summarized):

Support preloading the image file into memory and passing to the interpreter to operate on the image in memory.

a) Allows preloading the image into memory on platforms where the
image may not be in an external file.

b) Allows mmap()ing the entire image into memory (I think
John does that on the iPhone).

Propose an additional VM entry point:
  Interpreter>>readImageFromHeap: heapStart size: heapSize
Additional Information See thread on vm-dev list January 2010 for discussion
