Terminates an NLM™ application abnormally.
#include <stdlib.h> void abort ( void );
This function causes the NLM to be terminated abnormally. It writes the following termination message to the System Console Screen:
LibC-<version>: <NLM_Name>.NLM called abort() and will have to be reloaded!
The abort function then raises SIGABRT and calls the _exit function.
The following sequence of events occurs when the NLM is terminated abnormally:
Cleanup code registered with the NXVmRegisterExitHandler function is called.
All threads in the NLM are destroyed.
All libraries that the NLM has used as a client are notified of the shutdown via the register library cleanup routines.
All other resources allocated by the NLM are freed.
The NLM is unloaded.
