Actor garbage collection
Thu Nov 4 14:32:35 CET 2010
Does an orphaned waiting process get garbage collected? By orphaned I mean
no one references it (no one has its pid) so it will never receive anymore
messages. By waiting I mean it is waiting for a message inside a receive.
Wait = fun() -> receive _ -> 0 end end.
Will that spawned process live and wait forever even though we did not
capture its pid and thus can't send messages to it, or will it be garbage
