on_exit

SYNOPSIS
       #include <stdlib.h>

       int on_exit(void (*function)(int , void *), void *arg);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       on_exit(): _BSD_SOURCE || _SVID_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION
       The on_exit() function registers the given function  to  be  called  at
       normal  process termination, whether via exit(3) or via return from the
       program's main().  The function is passed the status argument given  to
       the last call to exit(3) and the arg argument from on_exit().

       The  same  function may be registered multiple times: it is called once
       for each registration.

       When a child process is created via fork(2), it inherits copies of  its
       parent's  registrations.   Upon a successful call to one of the exec(3)
       functions, all registrations are removed.

RETURN VALUE
       The on_exit() function returns the value 0 if successful; otherwise  it
       returns a nonzero value.

CONFORMING TO
       This function comes from SunOS 4, but is also present in glibc.  It  no
       longer  occurs in Solaris (SunOS 5).  Portable application should avoid
       this function, and use the standard atexit(3) instead.
