Verifies a program assertion.
Standard C Library (libc.a)
void assert ( Expression)
The assert macro puts error messages into a program. If the specified expression is false, the assert macro writes the following message to standard error and stops the program:
Assertion failed: Expression, file FileName, line LineNumber
In the error message, the FileName value is the name of the source file and the LineNumber value is the source line number of the assert statement.
|Expression||Specifies an expression that can be evaluated as true or false. This expression is evaluated in the same manner as the C language IF statement.|
This macro is part of Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
The assert macro uses the _assert subroutine.
The abort (abort Subroutine) subroutine.
The cpp command.
