5.2 Process Control
- void Py_FatalError(char *message)
Print a fatal error message and kill the process. No cleanup is
performed. This function should only be invoked when a condition is
detected that would make it dangerous to continue using the Python
interpreter; e.g., when the object administration appears to be
corrupted. On Unix, the standard C library function
abort() is called which will attempt to
produce a core file.
- void Py_Exit(int status)
Exit the current process. This calls
Py_Finalize() and then calls the
standard C library function
- int Py_AtExit(void (*func) ())
Register a cleanup function to be called by
Py_Finalize() The cleanup
function will be called with no arguments and should return no
value. At most 32 leanup functions can be
registered. When the registration is successful,
0; on failure, it returns
-1. The cleanup function registered last is called first.
Each cleanup function will be called at most once. Since Python's
internal finallization will have completed before the cleanup
function, no Python APIs should be called by func.
