Does PHP do automatic garbage collection?

Does PHP do automatic garbage collection, or should you explicitly
destroy things.

I found this statement mysql_free_result($result);
This makes me wonder.

Thanks for your help.

mysql_free_result() only needs to be called if you are concerned
about how much memory is being used for queries that return large
result sets. All associated result memory is automatically freed at
the end of the script's execution.
