How to delete object in python and free memory space?

1 Answer

Garbage collection is a very important aspect of any good programming language. Likewise, Python lets us delete a lot of stuff, including objects.

To delete an object in Python, we use the ‘del’ keyword. A when we try to refer to a deleted object, it raises NameError.

>>> del orange
>>> orange

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “<pyshell#729>”, line 1, in <module>
NameError: name ‘orange’ is not defined
