hi there,

let say, we got a console app.

Code:
.j1:
      invoke Sleep,3000
      cinvoke printf,"hi world %c%c",13,10
      jmp .j1

.j2:
      ; code to clean all handles and flush everything before we exit.
    


when i press Ctrl + C in win32 console app, what actually windows does? run my .j2 code to flush all things nicely? or just terminate.

Depends... you should take a look here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms686016(VS.85).aspx

If console app doesn't set up any handler, then IMO it is brute-force closed, that means it doesn't close its stuff... but windows, when it ends process, is supposed to close everything opened by process, and AFAIK this is reliable. For example HLA standard library relies on this behavior.
