abort---abnormal termination of a program
#include <stdlib.h> void abort(void);
abort to signal that your program has detected a condition it
cannot deal with. Normally,
abort ends your program's execution.
Before terminating your program,
abort raises the exception
raise(SIGABRT)'). If you have used
signal to register
an exception handler for this condition, that handler has the
opportunity to retain control, thereby avoiding program termination.
In this implementation,
abort does not perform any stream- or
file-related cleanup (the host environment may do so; if not, you can
arrange for your program to do its own cleanup with a
abort does not return to its caller.
