Collecting Garbage: PHP's take on variables

in PHP added by goodphptutorials, on 16/9/2010 advanced tutorials php5

In this three part column I will explain the merits of the new Garbage Collection (also known as GC) mechanism that is part of PHP 5.3. Before we start with the intricate details of PHP's new GC engine I will explain why it is actually needed. This, combined with an introduction how PHP deals with variables in general is explained in this first part of the column. The second part will cover the solution and some notes on the GC mechanism itself, and the third part covers some implications of the GC mechanism, as well as some benchmarks. But now first on to the introduction.
