	  void abort_on_error(const char *message)
	  {
	     if	(screen	!= NULL)
		set_gfx_mode(GFX_TEXT, 0, 0, 0,	0);

	     allegro_message("%s.\nLast	Allegro	error `%s'\n",
			     message, allegro_error);
	     exit(-1);
	  }
	  ...
	     if	(some_allegro_function() == ERROR_CODE)
		abort_on_error("Error calling some function!");
