Comment on Tutorial : C++ Destructors Versus Java Finalization By Emiley J
"This happens immediately, and before any other program statements will execute. Thus, a C++ destructor will always execute in a deterministic fashion. You can always know when and where a destructor will be executed. "
Are you sure about this??? Then there must have been a change in the language. "The C++ Programming Language by Bjarne Struostrup" (granted, not the C++ standard) says in r.12.2 "The exact point of destruction is implementation dependent." Some compilers I've used do in fact destroy temporaries and automatic variables immediately; but other compilers I have used do not. It's REALLY annoying not being able to treat destructors as deterministic. If the language DOES IN FACT define the point of destruction, then I'm writing to my compiler vendors! Please give us a paragraph reference for this behavior.
