    Automatically executing method on library unload (gcc)

    Just a quick question (I hope).

    Is it possible to give gcc a directive/pragma to get it to run a cleanup function when a library is unloaded? This would be trivial in C++ - it would just be a destructor. Do I need to rewrite my code inside a class and use g++, or can I keep my code pure C and still manage this?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Why don't you write the cleanup routine as part of the unload procedure?
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.
