The C run-time library contains the functions that support run-time error checks (RTC). Run-time error checking allows you to build your program such that certain kinds of run-time errors are reported. You specify how the errors are reported and which kinds of errors are reported. For more information, see Run-Time Error Checks.

Use the following functions to customize the way your program does run-time error checking.
