    do you need to delete an object?

    maybe u mean a constructor!?

    if so use a"~"

    else u just write delete and then the stuff u want to delete!

    yeah i mean, are there any other way than these two?

    delete object;
    delete [] object;?

    don't forget to set it to NULL afterwards though,

    you can't call a destructor within your program, just so you know.

    you could dynamically allocate memory for the class then delete it. create a destructor.

    This is true. Use a normal function to destroy the object, which can then be called by the destructor instead.

    You say you have a database of cars, and you want to delete one. Do you mean delete an object or delete a record from the database?
