Do you use a garbage collector?

I followed a link to James Kanze's web site in another thread and was
surprised to read this comment by a link to a GC:

"I can't imagine writing C++ without it"

How many of you c.l.c++'ers use one, and in what percentage of your
projects is one used? I have never used one in personal or professional
C++ programming. Am I a holdover to days gone by?

Of course, if you forgot to write one the Compiler will create one
for you (that does a straight memory copy)
Actually the generated assigment operator calls the assignment
operator on all the members, and so on recursively, which may or may
not ultimately result in a straight memory copy depending on whether
any application-defined assignment operators are reached.

Correct, I was thinking about structs with only primitives members.
Thanks for the correction.
This had been a bloody C++ thread. Get it the freak off the Java newsgroup.
There's nothing here of any interest to the Java community. Buh-bye.
