MPS issue job000649

TitleNo way to just start a world-collection
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionThe MPS provides a function, mps_arena_collect(), allowing the client to "collect the world". However, this function does not return until the collection is completed. This provides a problem for single-threaded interactive clients, which may want to collect the world but not have a long compulsory collection pause: the collection can proceed in subsequent polls or calls to mps_arena_step().
Analysisadd mps_arena_start_collect()/ArenaStartCollect(), which kicks off a world collection (TraceCondemnAll) but does not complete it. mps_arena_collect()/ArenaCollect() can then call ArenaStartCollect() followed by ArenaPark().
