BSD 2.11 - man page for assert (bsd section 3)

ASSERT(3)				       Library Functions Manual 				    ASSERT(3)

NAME
assert - program verification
SYNOPSIS
#include <assert.h> assert(expression)
DESCRIPTION
Assert is a macro that indicates expression is expected to be true at this point in the program. It causes an exit(2) with a diagnostic comment on the standard output when expression is false (0). Compiling with the cc(1) option -DNDEBUG effectively deletes assert from the program.
DIAGNOSTICS
`Assertion failed: file f line n.' F is the source file and n the source line number of the assert statement. 7th Edition May 12, 1986 ASSERT(3)
