Execute functions before exiting

Sometimes it is necessary to execute functions when slang/isis is closed. In slang scripts this can be easily done via the atexit function.

For example:

1define my_exit_function () { vmessage("Exit time: %s", strftime("%H:%M:%S")); }

will print the exit time of the slang/isis process to stdout.

Exit function in C

The same behaviour can be accomplished in an slang module written in C. The function that needs to be called gets appended via

1void my_module_exit_function (void) {
2    destroy(global_object);
3    printf("Cleaning up mess!\n");

This might be necessary when memory is allocated and used until the very end.
