-8- The function exit() has additional behavior in this International
First, objects with static storage duration are destroyed and
functions registered by calling atexit are called. Objects with static
storage duration are destroyed in the reverse order of the completion
of their constructor. (Automatic objects are not destroyed as a result
of calling exit().)*
[Footnote: Objects with automatic storage duration are all
destroyed in a program whose function main() contains no
automatic objects and executes the call to exit(). Control can be
transferred directly to such a main() by throwing an exception
that is caught in main(). --- end foonote]
