Back to Reserved words.

The reserved word dispose belongs to object-oriented programming.

The reserved word dispose releases the memory by reducing the reference counter to the memory object by 1. If the reference counter of an object is 0, the memory object is released.


   intI: ^ Integer;

   if assigned (intI) then ... // Checks whether an address has been assigned to intI
   new (intI);  // Assigns a valid address to intI
   dispose (intI);  // Releases the address
