I know all that. :) My point is that reference counting is a technique of garbage collection.. so you got your terminology mixed up. What you meant to say is mark&sweep vs refcounting.

    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.

      Uhhh...

      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. =)

      dani++ (reference count increment)

1nickt is not sure more and more layers separating the programmer from the program is the right way to go...
[holli]: happy one, shmem ;)
[1nickt]: I had an interview couople of weeks ago, heard from a principal engineer that a friend of his who works at The Google told him that the self-teaching software that determines the dynamic pricing for their adverts...
[1nickt]: ... has become so complex that there is no one at the Goole who knows what it does.
[marto]: William Gibson was right
[moritz]: a classical problem with machine learning
[1nickt]: moritz isn;t the difference today that the machine learning algos are in charge of most stuffs?
[moritz]: depends on what you mean by "most stuff"
[1nickt]: I am sure I don't know about most of the stuff that is no longer controlled by humans. I do know that it's past the point of determining consumer pricing and into things that can kill me with blunt force!
