ABORT(3F)																 ABORT(3F)

NAME
abort - abnormal termination SYNOPSIS
subroutine abort (string) character*(*) string DESCRIPTION
Abort cleans up the I/O buffers and then terminates execution. If string is given, it is written to logical unit 0 preceded by ``abort:''. If the -g flag was specified during loading, then execution is terminated by calling abort(3) which aborts producing a core file in the current directory. If -g was not specified while loading, then *** Execution terminated is written on logical unit 0 and execution is ter- minated. If the f77_dump_flag environment variable has been set to a value which begins with y, abort(3) is called whether or not -g was specified during loading. Similarly, if the value of f77_dump_flag begins with n, abort is not called. FILES

NAME
abort - cause abnormal process termination SYNOPSIS
#include <stdlib.h> void abort(void); DESCRIPTION
The abort() first unblocks the SIGABRT signal, and then raises that signal for the calling process (as though raise(3) was called). This results in the abnormal termination of the process unless the SIGABRT signal is caught and the signal handler does not return (see longjmp(3)). If the SIGABRT signal is ignored, or caught by a handler that returns, the abort() function will still terminate the process. It does this by restoring the default disposition for SIGABRT and then raising the signal for a second time. RETURN VALUE
The abort() function never returns. ATTRIBUTES
For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7). +----------+---------------+---------+ |Interface | Attribute | Value | +----------+---------------+---------+ |abort() | Thread safety | MT-Safe | +----------+---------------+---------+ NOTES
Up until glibc 2.26, if the abort() function caused process termination, all open streams were closed and flushed (as with fclose(3)). However, in some cases this could result in deadlocks and data corruption. Therefore, starting with glibc 2.27, abort() terminates the process without flushing streams. POSIX.1 permits either possible behavior, saying that abort() "may include an attempt to effect fclose() on all open streams". CONFORMING TO
