A: No

Imagine the (desirable) side effect of destructing a local File object is to close the File. Suppose now you have an object f of a class File and you wish File f to be closed before the end of the scope (that means }) of the scope of object f:

void someCode()

{

File f;

...insert code that must execute while f is still open... We wish the side-effect of f''s destructor here!

...insert code which should execute after f is closed...

}

There is a simple solution to this dilemma. However in the mean time, remember: Do not call the destructor explicitly!
