I am sorry: the references had disappeared almost entirely due to an
upgrade of the manual to support Docbook 5.0. If you go back to
http://ecls.sourceforge.net/new-manual/ you will find again the manual
pages for ext:get-finalizer and ext:set-finalizer.

One word of warning, though: finalization has a penalty which is not to be
ignored. A more performant option might be to have a custom "new" method
that uses the garbage collector as memory manager. I believe the
Boehm-Weiser library has examples on how to combine C++ and its collector.
