       assert - program verification

       #include <assert.h>


       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.

       `Assertion failed: file f line n.'  F is the source file and n the source line  number  of
       the assert statement.
