|ABORT(3)||Library Functions Manual||ABORT(3)|
abort() function causes abnormal program termination to occur, unless the signal
SIGABRTis being caught and the signal handler does not return.
Some implementations may flush output streams before terminating. This implementation does not.
abort() function never returns.
abort() function conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-1990 (“POSIX.1”).
abort() function first appeared in Version 5 AT&T UNIX.
Historically, previous standards required
abort() to flush and close output streams, but this
conflicted with the requirement that
async signal safe. As a result, the flushing requirement was dropped.
