Heap Memory

Heap Memory is a region of a computer's memory where dynamic memory allocation occurs during the runtime of a program. It is used to store objects and data structures that are created and managed during the execution of the program. Unlike the stack memory, which is used for function calls and local variables, the heap memory allows for more flexible and dynamic memory allocation and deallocation.
