abort - cause abnormal process termination
The abort() first unblocks the SIGABRT signal, and then raises that signal for the calling
process. This results in the abnormal termination of the process unless the SIGABRT sig-
nal is caught and the signal handler does not return (see longjmp(3)).
If the abort() function causes process termination, all open streams are closed and
If the SIGABRT signal is ignored, or caught by a handler that returns, the abort() func-
tion will still terminate the process. It does this by restoring the default disposition
for SIGABRT and then raising the signal for a second time.
The abort() function never returns.
