Delete a new array?

Hi Experts,

I used "new" to create array:
     double[][] myArray;
     int n;
     n = 3;
     myArray = new double[n][n];
Do I need to delete the array like that in C++? If I need, how to do that?

Thank you in advance.

When the array object is no longer pointed to by any other object, then it will be garbage collected.

Thank you.

So, Java is better than C++ and VB in this aspect :-)

It has virtually automatic memory-management - there are no deletes, destructors, etc. I can't remember what VB does
