I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There isn't any direct way in the language as such of doing it....but yeah, u could force it thru an indeirect method

Make the constructor private as below

class FinalClass {
     static FinalClass * Create_FinalClass();
     FinalClass(const FinalClass&);
     FinalClass& operator=(const FinalClass&);

FinalClass* FinalClass::Create_FinalClass() {
     return new FinalClass();

int main(int argc, char* argv[]) {
     FinalClass *f = FinalClass::Create_FinalClass();    
     delete f;
     return 0;

Just to add to above comment, you can use an auto_ptr so the class gets deleted automatically.

#include <memory>

void SomeFunct()
      std::auto_ptr<FinalClass> f(FinalClass::Create_FinalClass());
