exit(3C)		 Standard C Library Functions		      exit(3C)

NAME
       exit, _exithandle - terminate process

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<stdlib.h>

       void exit(int status);

       void _exithandle(void);

DESCRIPTION
       The exit() function terminates a	process	by calling first _exithandle()
       and then	_exit()	(see exit(2)).

       The  _exithandle() function calls any functions registered through  the
       atexit(3C)  function  in	 the reverse order of their registration. This
       action includes executing all finalization code from the	.fini sections
       of all objects that are part of the process.

       The  _exithandle()  function is intended	for use	only with _exit(), and
       allows for specialized processing such as dldump(3C) to	be  performed.
       Normal  process	execution should not be	continued after	a call to _ex-
       ithandle() has occurred,	as internal data structures may	have been torn
       down due	to atexit() or .fini processing.

       The  symbols  EXIT_SUCCESS  and	EXIT_FAILURE are defined in the	header
       <stdlib.h> and may be used as the value of status to indicate  success-
       ful or unsuccessful termination,	respectively.
