After I destroy a fvMesh object:
mesh.~fvMesh();
or
mesh.fvMesh::~fvMesh();

I could still use mesh variable with no complains from the compiler?! Did I do something wrong?

Thanks.

I would never have thought of using the destructor function this way :-o

Not the destructor function destroys an object, but when an object is destroyed, then the destructor is called.

>I could still use mesh variable with no complains >from the compiler?!

There are several objects with an empty destructor, so calling it has no effect. But generally its a very, very bad idea.

>Did I do something wrong?

Depends on your point of view. I suggest doing something right would be to learn C++.

[Stroustrup2000 p. 256] "Note that explicit call of destructors ... should be avoided wherever possible. Occasionally, they are essential." Thanks for your help.
