       assert.h - verify program assertion

       #include <assert.h>

       The  <assert.h>	header	shall define the assert() macro.  It refers to
       the macro NDEBUG which is not defined  in  the  header.	If  NDEBUG  is
       defined	as  a  macro  name  before  the	 inclusion of this header, the
       assert() macro shall be defined simply as:

	      #define assert(ignore)((void) 0)

       Otherwise, the macro behaves as described in assert().

       The assert() macro shall be redefined according to the current state of
       NDEBUG each time <assert.h> is included.

       The  assert() macro shall be implemented as a macro, not as a function.
       If the macro definition is suppressed in	 order	to  access  an	actual
       function, the behavior is undefined.
