there is a discussion from 1998-99 (on NetNews/Usenet...) with this guy insisting that high level languages are a fad: They will never be able to compete with properly written assembly code. Well, it can. GC can compete with most hand-written heap management code.


Rather certain that I was looking at a automated GC for C++ in the 90s. It was an add in library of course. And one needed to adapt certain ways of working.

But of course in C# and Java, both with automated GC, one must adopt to the reality that computers have many resources of which memory is just one. So one must adapt to certain ways of working - one must always explicitly manage everything except memory. With C++ however one can manage other resources via the scope (dtors) and do so with complete control.

Certainly for my definition of "mainstream" it is in fact exactly that. And it hasn't changed much in the last 20 years.
