Response to: Java; I want a destructor!

This is especially true in a object-oriented language. I have a stream. Is it a memory stream or does it represent a file, a socket, or something else that the garbage collector won't release (or that a finalize method will release too late)? If you don't know, then you'll have to remember to try-finally-close that stream. Even when dealing with memory streams. That's convenience?
