[erlang-questions] terminating a gen_server
Mon Sep 10 19:13:28 CEST 2007
I've found that I can do exit(Pid, shutdown) where Pid is a gen_server and it
will nicely shut down, calling Mod:terminate.
I can't see how this works. The server is not trapping exit signals so I would
expect it to just exit without calling Mod:terminate.
The code in gen_server:loop seems to be deliberately written to support this
behaviour. Can we rely on it?
