25. Process Termination

Chapter 25. Process Termination

This chapter describes what happens when a process terminates. We begin by describing the use of exit() and _exit() to terminate a process. We then discuss the use of exit handlers to automatically perform cleanups when a process calls exit(). We conclude by considering some interactions between fork(), stdio buffers, and exit().
