Hi,
I'm interested in hooking into the garbage collection mechanisms in R to
enable R to manage the garbage collection in an imaging package that
does its own memory allocation. This would require R to call a
destructor when it disposes of objects of a certain class. Is this a
practical approach? I've been looking for documentation about the R
internals, but haven't found any yet - where should I be looking.

Thanks, any advice is welcome.
