[chuck-users] variables and memory

Hi all,

as i've read in the documentation or maybe in some email in this list, ChucK lacks garbage collector. If my understanding is correct this means that it does not automatically free the memory that any variable needs after getting out of its scope. So this probably mean that if I run a loop that declares a variables like

for( int i = 0; i < 100; i++; )
    int var1; float var2[10];
    // do things

and have this code called many times inside an infinite loop and do other stuff in other shreds, after a while it's inevitable to run into problems. Is this correct? Is there anything like c++'s delete to free memory?
