|Synopsis:||Data members do not have to be reset in a destructor|
|Category:||Object Life Cycle|
A destructor must typically release any resources that an object has in use. For instance, it deletes dynamically allocated memory. Resetting data members in a destructor, such as setting a long to 0, is useless. This is because data members are no longer used after the destructor has been called.
