/* Close standard output. On error, issue a diagnostic and _exit

Also close standard error. On error, _exit with status 'exit_failure'.
Since close_stdout is commonly registered via 'atexit', POSIX
and the C standard both say that it should not call 'exit',
because the behavior is undefined if 'exit' is called more than
once. So it calls '_exit' instead of 'exit'. If close_stdout
is registered via atexit before other functions are registered,
the other functions can act before this _exit is invoked.
Applications that use close_stdout should flush any streams
other than stdout and stderr before exiting, since the call to
_exit will bypass other buffer flushing. Applications should
be flushing and closing other streams anyway, to check for I/O
errors. Also, applications should not use tmpfile, since _exit
can bypass the removal of these files.
It's important to detect such failures and exit nonzero because many
tools (most notably `make' and other build-management systems) depend
on being able to detect failure in other tools via their exit status. */
