An explicit invocation of a destructor means that the destruction of an object is triggered manually by calling the destructor function explicitly. This is usually done in situations where the object needs to be destroyed before it goes out of scope or when it is no longer needed. It is important to note that explicit invocation of a destructor should only be done on objects that were created with placement new or when using dynamic memory allocation with operator new. Manually calling a destructor on an object that was created with automatic storage duration or declared as a global object can lead to undefined behavior.
