Three Word: Deterministic Is Good

apenwarr: No kidding. Ohh, C++ is so complicated and messy... This is so much easier... Except... Yaaaarrrrghhhhh!

People, if Perl, of all bloody languages/runtimes can do it in a less complicated way (pure reference counting with weak references, deterministic finalization), you're doomed.

Perl. Simpler. Think about that.

what can't you do in perl?

Nothing! That's why it's so awesome. :-)

In case my post wasn't clear, garbage collection in .NET is amazingly, stunningly complicated, and Perl has got a better (.NET's finalization is non-deterministic, Perl's is deterministic) garbage collection scheme that works very well and is way simpler.

Talk about lose (for .NET, not Perl!)...
