Re: [std-proposals] finally keyword

If exception is thrown, no destructor is called.


Finally is used for tasks performed regardless of thrown exception, but when exception is caught, control jumps to finally block.

Subject: Re: [std-proposals] finally keyword

that is a feature what destructors and SBRM are fir

available in standard library extensions TS2, as scope guards, but not approved to std for the better.(I am the author)

if there is a simple enough library solution, why should there be a language extension.

watch a recording of one of my "what classes we design and how" to learn when destructors and clean up are actually desirable.
