fatal error
Jump to user comments
programming, operating system Any error which causes
abrupt termination of the program. The program may be
terminated either by itself or by the operating system (a
"fatal exception"). In the former instance, the program
contains code which catches the error and, as a result,
returns to the operating system or calls an operating system
service to terminate the program.
