terminate

Calls a terminate handler.

void terminate( );

Remarks

The function calls a terminate handler, a function of type void. If terminate is called directly by the program, the terminate handler is the one most recently set by a call to set_terminate. If terminate is called for any of several other reasons during evaluation of a throw expression, the terminate handler is the one in effect immediately after evaluating the throw expression.

A terminate handler may not return to its caller. At program startup, the terminate handler is a function that calls abort.

Example

See set_unexpected for an example of the use of terminate.
