6.21.1 Program termination

Function: exit &optional (code 0)
[POSIX] Terminates the current process with the exit code code. Code must be zero or positive exact integer. This procedure first invokes the after thunks of the current dynamic handlers (See section 6.15.3 Continuation), then flushes opened file buffers, finally calls exit(2).

Function: sys-exit &optional (code 0)
[POSIX] Terminates the current process with the exit code code. Code must be zero or positive exact integer. This procedure calls _exit(2) directly. No cleanup is done. Unflushed file output is discarded.

Function: sys-abort
[POSIX] Calls POSIX abort(). This usually terminates the running process and dumps core. No cleanup is done.
