According to, a SIGHUP will be sent to bash in this case. Are you handling the right signal?

BTW, the atexit() callback also should be called -- do you have a simple
testcase to reproduce the problem?

I know nothing about signals, but this program when run inside bash does not seem to run callback() *ever*.
^c does not run it. Closing the bash window does not run it. But if you remove the loop then it *is* run.

#include <stdio.h>
void callback()
 FILE *current;


int main()
