2.8.7 fini

#pragma fini (f1[, f2…,fn]

Causes the implementation to call functions f1 to fn (finalization functions) after it calls main() routine. Such functions are expected to be of type void and to accept no arguments, and are called either when a program terminates under program control or when the containing shared object is removed from memory. As with “initialization functions,” finalization functions are executed in the order processed by the link editors.

You should be careful when a finalization function affects the global-program state. For example, unless an interface explicitly states what happens when you use a system-library finalization-function, you should capture and restore any global state information, such as the value of errno, that the system-library finalization-function may change.
