3.1 C Compile-Time Parameters

The C Preprocessor Constants in this section are defined in wbdefs.h which is derived from wbdefs.scm.

Each segment (file-based or not) maintains a freelist of disk blocks. In a newly created segment, nearly all of its block numbers are in the freelist.

— C Preprocessor Constant: flc_len

flc_len must be larger than 2 times the maximum number of blocks which would ever be needed for a freelist split. The minimum for flc_len is 10.
