NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     abort - generate an abnormal termination signal

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <stdlib.h>

     void abort	(void);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     abort first closes	all open files,	stdio(3S) streams, directory streams
     and message catalogue descriptors,	if possible, then causes the signal
     SIGABRT to	be sent	to the calling process.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     sh(1), exit(2), kill(2), signal(2), catopen(3C), stdio(3S)

DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]

     If	SIGABRT	is neither caught nor ignored, and the current directory is
     writable, a core dump is produced and the message abort - core dumped is
     written by	the shell [see sh(1)].
