The error is what the OP wanted, so that is expected.

Although, he did ask for it to be on the next line, but this is 
better since it points exactly to the line where he was escaping 
a reference to the scoped object.

No I didn't. Anything created with new has automatic lifetime. 
Here the OP wanted to (have the compiler) destroy the FileReader 
when it left the scope, while disallowing any use after free.
