SET_CONSTRAINT_HANDLER_S(3C) Standard C Library Functions

NAME


set_constraint_handler_s, abort_handler_s, ignore_handler_s - runtime-
constraint handling

LIBRARY


Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS


#define __STDC_WANT_LIB_EXT1__ 1

#include <stdlib.h>

constraint_handler_t
set_constraint_handler_s(constraint_handler_t handler);

void
abort_handler_s(const char *restrict msg, void *restrict ptr,
errno_t error);

void
ignore_handler_s(const char *restrict msg, void *restrict ptr,
errno_t error);

DESCRIPTION


The set_constraint_handler_s() function sets the runtime-constraint handler
to be handler.

The runtime-constraint handler is the callback function invoked when a
library function detects a runtime-constraint violation, having the
following prototype:

void (*constraint_handler_t)(const char *restrict msg,
void *restrict ptr, errno_t error);

The arguments are as follows:

msg A pointer to a character string describing the runtime-constraint
violation.

ptr A NULL pointer.

error If the function calling the handler has a return type declared as
errno_t, the return value of the function is passed. Otherwise, a
positive value of type errno_t is passed.

Only the most recent handler registered with set_constraint_handler_s() is
called when a runtime-constraint violation occurs.

The implementation has a default constraint handler that is used if no
calls to the set_constraint_handler_s() function have been made. If the
handler argument to set_constraint_handler_s() is a NULL pointer, the
default handler becomes the current constraint handler.

The abort_handler_s() and ignore_handler_s() are the standard-defined
runtime-constraint handlers provided by the C library.

The abort_handler_s() function writes the error message including the msg
to stderr and calls the abort(3C) function. The abort_handler_s() is
currently the default runtime-constraint handler.

The ignore_handler_s() simply returns to its caller.

RETURN VALUES


The set_constraint_handler_s() function returns a pointer to the previously
registered handler, or NULL if none was previously registered.

The abort_handler_s() function does not return to its caller.

The ignore_handler_s() function returns no value.
