Hi all

Is there any way to delete global objects from memory? Specifically I need to delete some macro definitions loaded when loading my macro. I load the macro "macro.cxx" that contains an #include directive for a file "macro.hh", that contains some #ifndef and #define commands; unloading macro.cxx, macro definitions are still there (obviuosly) but this forbid macro.hh to be loaded again.

Till now I tried with (supposing my macro is MACRO_H)


and all its casted variants but when typing again


but arrived at the former MACRO_H position root gives me "segmentation violation"

I'd prefer to avoid gROOT->Reset() if possible because there are a lot of circumstances that I want to delete my global variables without resetting the environment.

I use ROOT v4.00/04 binary version for Linux and gcc 3.3.2
