Thread: Memory Managment and Exception Handling

  1. #1

    Memory Managment and Exception Handling

    I wonder about Memory Managment and Exception Handling in C#.

    I know that C# has its own "garbage collection" to prevent memory leaks. How does this work and how does someone code accordingly for this? I see that there is still the "new" statement in C# that C++ has for allocating memory for a new object or pointer. Does the "garbage collection" mean that you do not have to have a corresponding "delete" for every "new" statement?

    Do you still have to account for exception handling in C#? Do you still need the "try...catch... throw" blocks? Are them implimented the same way as in C++?

    You don't need exception handling, but I would definitely not leave it out. It's important imo to have exception handling.

    As for garbage collection, and someone correct me if I'm wrong just cause my c# memory is rusty. But garbage collection is only run through at random(?) You should destroy your objects once you've finished with them to free up memory because the gc isn't guranteed to free up memory regularly. I'll add more later if someone hasn't already.

    For the most part, you should never have to manually force the garbage collector to run. Part of the advantage of the .NET framework is that garbage collection is handled for you. If you really want the extra bits of space and can't wait until the automatic collector kicks in, you can start collecting by typing GC.Collect()

    Great, now even Kirupa is { facebooking | twittering }
