I am in the process of writing my own programming language and I would
like to use garbage collection as a means for automatic memory
management. I have decided that I want to implement a two-stage
generational copying collector.

I know how a copying and generational collector works but Im not sure
how they work when put together. In my mind, generational is similar
to coping in being that they both seperate the heap into two
semi-spaces, but use totaly different methods to collect garbage. Can
someone shield some light on this subject for me.

Thanks in advance.
