On page 62, at the bottom of the page, in the Real World Scenario dialog box, the end of the 1st line, going into the 2nd line, reads.." very first version is that it automates performs garbage collection for you".

Should this rather read, "very first version is that it automatically performs garbage collection for you" ?

Please quote the whole sentence, otherwise I can only say, “don't know”.

Hi Campbell

I apologise for this. It may be less significant than a content error as its only a typo.

The original sentence reads, "One of the distinguishing characteristics of Java since its very first version is that it auto-
mates performs garbage collection for you."

I just thought it was supposed to read, "One of the distinguishing characteristics of Java since its very first version is that it automatically
performs garbage collection for you"

Thank you for the fuller information. Yes, that does look like a mistake. Automates, yes. Automatically performs, yes. Automates performance of, yes but awkward. Automates performs, no.
