Syntax for the destructor of a nameless class

Syntax for the destructor of a nameless class

Syntax for the destructor of a nameless class

This is one of those mmm I wonder how you would do that questions. In C++, we can declare nameless classes like


    void Create ()

    void Destroy ()
} noname; 
In a named class, if I want Destroy to be called when the object is deleted, I put it in the destructor (~name). What is the syntax for the destructor in a nameless class? The only thing I can think of is a delete operator.


void operator ~()   // doesn't get called

   operator ~()        // produces a syntax error

   ~()                 // produces a syntax error 

RE: Syntax for the destructor of a nameless class

Constructor or destructor declarations must have class names, that's why unnamed classes cannot have user-defined constructors or destructor.
