you know how you can create a temp class that will automatically be destroyed when it goes out of scope? Can you do this with arrays?
class Foo
{
   Foo(int)

   Foo Blu() {return Foo(1)};
};

int main()
{
   Foo boo = Foo::Blu(); // <-- this var will be 
                //destroyed when this function ends
                //can you do the same thing with a char array?
                //or other array?

}

Well you can create the array before using it, and free it after, but it won't be automatic.

Only when the array is on the stack....

int func()
{
{
int temparray[100];
temparray[0] = 1;
}
temparray[0] = 0; // ERROR: temparray is out-of-scope
}


Or if you need it dynamically allocated, take a look at boost::array
