ON_EXIT(3)		   Linux Programmer's Manual		    ON_EXIT(3)

       on_exit	-  register a function to be called at normal process termina‐

       #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

       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.

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

       This  function  comes from SunOS 4, but is also present in libc4, libc5
       and glibc.  It no longer occurs in Solaris (SunOS 5).  Avoid this func‐
       tion, and use the standard atexit(3) instead.

       _exit(2), atexit(3), exit(3)
