DESCRIPTIONThe 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.
RETURN VALUEThe on_exit() function returns the value 0 if successful; otherwise it returns a nonzero value.
ATTRIBUTESFor an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).
CONFORMING TOThis 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.
