Garbage collection has proven benefits, including fewer memory-related errors and reduced programmer effort. Garbage collection, however, trades space for time. It reclaims memory only when it is invoked: invoking it more frequently reclaims memory quickly, but incurs a significant cost; invoking it less frequently fills memory with dead objects.
