This category holds links to programming languages and systems that support garbage collection (GC or gc), also called automatic or automated memory management or storage reclamation. This frees programmers from having to manually allocate and deallocate memory for various reasons (e.g., dynamic objects), aids programming productivity, and reduces errors. Almost all interpreted languages are garbage collected, use GC. On this page, languages are arranged in three groups and levels: 1) Top group: types or classes of language where all instances of such languages have GC. 2) Middle group: types or classes of language where many instances of such languages have GC. 3) Bottom group: specific languages.
