There are programing environments where memory management is more or less
automated (garbage collection, reclaiming unused memory, a contemporary
example is Java) but all this comes at a price: lower speed and more memory.
For many situations, this might be an acceptable compromise but just to get
rid of some typing, it's not worth it...
