abort Function

Aborts the current process.

Include

<stdlib.h>

Prototype

void abort(void);

Remarks

When using MPLAB XC8 for PIC, the abort function will ultimately call _Exit(). For all other compilers, abort() cause the processor to reset.

Example

See the notes at the beginning of this chapter or section for information on using printf() or scanf() (and other functions reading and writing the stdin or stdout streams) in the example code.

#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h>

int main(void)
{
	double	x, y;

	x = -2.0;
	if(x < -1.0 || x > 1.0) {
		printf("input out of range\n");
		abort();
	}
	y = acos(x);
	printf("the arc cosine of %g is %g\n", x, y);
}

Example Output

input out of range
