The reason behind my answer is I looked for lisp on google because i don't know anything about it ,but C++ is a object oriented programming Language like Java and C# and Java  and C# has garbage collector so i thought C++ must be having garbage collector.

in case of C Lang we have to write a code for garbage collector .

Ok but anyway C++ does not provide garbage collection automatically .
I have corrected my answer...
what is garbage collector..?????  :'(

In computer science, garbage collection (GC) is a form of automatic memory management. The garbage collector, or just collector, attempts to reclaim garbage, or memory occupied by objects that are no longer in use by the program.
