Mark & Sweep functions - Garbage Collection

 I have added a new type to STk by following the examples in "Extending
 the STk interpreter" and the 'hash.c' file. Everything seems to work,
 but I am concerned that I may not be handling garbage collection
 correctly. What is the purpose of the gc_mark_fct and the gc_sweep_fct
 that is stored in the extended scheme type structure? How can I verify
 that garbage collection is working correctly for my new type? Also,
 what is the purpose of the is_procp function in the same structure?
 Thanks in advance,
 Sarah Officer
