NAME
       abort() - generate a software abort fault

SYNOPSIS
DESCRIPTION
       first  closes  all  open	files, streams,	directory streams, and message
       catalogue descriptors, if possible, then	causes the signal to  be  sent
       to  the	calling	 process.   This may cause a core dump to be generated
       (see signal(2)).

       If the signal is	caught,	the handling function  is  executed.   If  the
       handling	function returns, the action for is then reset to and the sig-
       nal is sent again to the	process	to ensure that it terminates.
