OS module in Python provides functions for interacting with the operating system. OS comes under Python’s standard utility modules. This module provides a portable way of using operating system dependent functionality.
os.abort() method in Python is used to generate a SIGABRT signal to the current process. On Unix, this method produces a core dump while on Windows, the process immediately returns an exit code of 3.
This method does not call the Python signal handler registered for SIGABRT signal with signal.signal().
Parameter: No parameter is required.
Return type: This method does not return any value in the calling process.
