Transitivity in computing?[edit]

Dispose seems to be becoming transitive (i.e. one disposes something rather than disposes of it). I've noticed this especially in the IT industry, where several modern programming languages offer a Dispose (or similar) method to destroy an object that is no longer needed. Even the docs tend to talk about "disposing" things. Equinox 23:01, 1 September 2009 (UTC)


I'm missing dispose over (a bank account, the future of something, etc.). --LA2 17:41, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
