"Critical Termination" autoexit

6 posts in this topic

I couldn't think of another title besides "critical termination". I have an autoexit feature set up in my app to save some important data upon exiting. However, sometimes apps fail and they terminate unexpectedly; in a case like that, is there a way to still do some type of save function upon termination....or am I relegated to making some kind of autosaving feature for every 5min or something?

Can I detect that unexpected/critical termination/shut down?

once an app crashes, saving your progress is going to be difficult.

maybe you can have a second app watching the first, and reading information from the main one and keeping it as a variable.

this function doesn't really relate, but i see slight similarity.

_WinAPI_FatalAppExit

you could always just save the information very often, so if a crash happens, the information will be iniwritten of filewritten previous to crash.

@Champak: Autosave is a great feature!

@Tomb616: I'll trade you avatars...

Here are the terms I am offering:

1) Your avatar is to become my property, and mine your property.

2) Neither party can use their old avatar ever again - nor even any variation of the theme in only your particular case.

:D

@Champak: Autosave feature - good idea !

i knew you loved my avatar. :D

hmm those are pretty amazing terms.

but i don't like your current avatar.

if you get a nice one i like, we can make a trade of them.

i mean your name is squirrely and its a squirrel, the similarity is apparent.

I have a sneakin' suspicion you are on to my real ageda.

Okay then, same offer again, but this time I must heap praise on you in a new thread devoted to the topic of your virtue.

Yeah, I guess I'll just save it every 5 min.
