NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       panic - General: Causes a system crash

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       void panic(
               char *message );

ARGUMENTS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Specifies  the  message you want the panic routine to display
 on the console terminal.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The panic routine causes a system crash,  usually  because
       of  fatal  errors.  It  sends  to the console terminal and
       error logger the specified message  and,  possibly,  other
       system-dependent   information   (for   example,  register
       dumps). It also causes a crash dump to be generated. After
       displaying  the  message,  panic reboots the system if the
       console environment variables are set appropriately.

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]
