The assert macro will terminate the program, often with a message about the assert statement, if its argument are false.

#include 
#include 

int main()
{

int x = 10;
int y = 2;

assert(x==y);
}

The output of this snipped of code is:

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
