MirOS Manual: atexit(3)

ATEXIT(3)                  BSD Programmer's Manual                   ATEXIT(3)

NAME

     atexit - register a function to be called on exit

SYNOPSIS

     #include <stdlib.h>

     int
     atexit(void (*function)(void));

DESCRIPTION

     The atexit() function registers the given function to be called at pro-
     gram exit, whether via exit(3) or via return from the program's main().
     Functions so registered are called in reverse order; no arguments are
     passed. At least 32 functions can always be registered, and more are al-
     lowed as long as sufficient memory can be allocated.

     atexit() is very difficult to use correctly without creating exit(3)-time
     races. Unless absolutely necessary, please avoid using it.

RETURN VALUES

     The atexit() function returns the value 0 if successful; otherwise the
     value -1 is returned and the global variable errno is set to indicate the
     error.

ERRORS

     [ENOMEM]      No memory was available to add the function to the list.
                   The existing list of functions is unmodified.

SEE ALSO

     exit(3)

STANDARDS

     The atexit() function conforms to ANSI X3.159-1989 ("ANSI C").
