exit, _exithandle - terminate process
void exit(int status);
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(3DL) to be performed. Normal process execution should
not be continued after a call to _exithandle() 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 successful or unsuccessful termination, respec-
