There are TWO garbage collectors, one ref counting the other coloring. Both are real-time. You can generate code for either. The ref counting is made visible in limbo and I find it eliminates lots of clean up and bookkeeping code, especially in error cases. You often end up breaking things into subroutines or modules that are cleared away predictably by the garbage collectors. phil
