Memory Management

  • Carlos Oliveira


Complex memory management is one of the main problems that developers need to deal with when working with the C programing language. The power provided by direct manipulation of memory addresses, which is the hallmark of effective C programming, may also become a difficult issue when one needs to manually manage the location of those objects in memory. Objective-C, although retaining the power of the C programming language, also introduces a better way of organizing and managing memory. To simplify the use of memory-using objects, the language provides techniques that are fully based on OOP principles.
