Ah yes... terminology... sorry... :-) Replace every occurrence of 'garbage collection' with 'non-reference counted garbage collection' in posts that I made. The reason I made it more vague, is because there are more ways to perform non-reference counted garbage collection than 'mark & sweep'. The most obvious example is a 'copy' garbage collector.

Technically, you are definately correct that reference counting is a form of garbage collection.

    The information officer in Chaplin's movie about war is called 'Garbitch', so that means he's not using refcounting?

    Burp! Sorry, too much beer. =)
