Magic. :) It works in the obvious way. Startup code added to your application by the D compiler runs the collection algorithm from time to time. It's not mysterious, and it doesn't need a virtual machine. Each D application gets its own garbage collector. Jill

I don't have a wife, being a girl. And you think houses are cleaned by women? Oooh, that says a lot about you. Jill

It does? Well women always understand a man differently (HEH), I actually said something good about them, you shouldn't consider them cleaning your house as magic but praise it if they do ;)

I think the problem is not the fact of magic cleaning but of *only* women cleaning the house. That is a hard one since not all women clean house. Although, I can't find any example in real life of that happening. I'm sure it does, it all depends who is wearing the pants and how good of a man the guy is. Jacob Santos

I'm not entirely sure this follows, but if W has his way, it may become unconstitutional for you to have one in the future.

I think he was suggesting that houses are cleaned by wives, but all of the cleanest houses I've seen were cleaned by maids.
 Oooh, that says a lot about you.

Translation from femalese: MALE CHAUVINIST PIG Just out of curiousity, anyone know enough to comment on Jill's cuteness? She already ranks an 11 out of 10 for coolness. peas. Garett

It was more like this. Imagine my house got cleaned by my wife, the same way the garbage collector cleans my memory, then I shouldn't call it magic for that would be an insult :o.

Arcane Jill, I wonder if that's her real name. Maybe her name is Jill but not 'Arcane' (hence archangel). Rating people reminds me of stupid bar guys though, no offense! Not that I ever went to a bar.

Of course not. What kind of a name is "Arcane"?

For the derivation of the name Arcane Jill, I suggest you read "So Long and Thanks for all the Fish" by Douglas Adams. Arcane Jill
