Iexit-in-shared-library

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.318. That is the most recent version we know about.

The listed shared library calls the C library exit() or _exit() functions.

In the case of an error, the library should instead return an appropriate error code to the calling program which can then determine how to handle the error, including performing any required clean-up.

In most cases, removing the call should be discussed with upstream, particularly as it may produce an ABI change.

This tag is experimental.
