14.4 NEW and END Operators

To help deal with dynamic allocation and deallocation of memory there are two, powerful operators, NEW and END. The NEW operator is very versatile, and similar in operation to the New family of built-in functions (see 11.3.5 System support functions). The END operator is the deallocating complement of NEW (so it is similar to the Dispose family of built-in functions). The major difference between NEW and the various flavours of New is that NEW allocates memory based on the types of its arguments.
