What happens with a stack allocated record?
(no new() required, nor dispose() so is the record ever 

Or stack records are forbidden?

One reason I love records is because you can create a stack record 
without any worry of freeing and creating it on heap, a huge advantage 
over OOP programming in delphi/fpc where everything is heap object 
(except old turbo pascal objects).

Sorry, I've been out of touch with what's happening with Records lately 
in modern pascal/delphi/etc.
(If it sounds like a silly newbie question, forgive me, I am not up on 
the latest and greatest!)
