<programming, operating system> Any error which causes abrupt termination
of the program. The program may be terminated either by itself or by the
operating system (a "fatal exception"). In the former instance, the program
contains code which catches the error and, as a result, returns to the operating
system or calls an operating system service to terminate the program.
