ABORT(3)		   Library Functions Manual		      ABORT(3)

NAME
       abort - generate	a fault

SYNOPSIS
       abort()

DESCRIPTION
       abort() first closes all	open files if possible,	then sends an IOT sig-
       nal to the process.  This signal	usually	results	in termination with  a
       core dump, which	may be used for	debugging.

       It is possible for abort() to return control if SIGIOT is caught	or ig-
       nored, in which case the	value returned is that of the kill(2V)	system
       call.

SEE ALSO
       adb(1), exit(2V), kill(2V), signal(3V)

DIAGNOSTICS
       If  SIGIOT  is neither caught nor ignored, and the current directory is
       writable, a core	dump is	produced and the message `abort	- core dumped'
       is written by the shell.
