I'm analyzing a MIPS ELF executable with calls to the exit() function, however IDA PRO is not correctly recognizing the end of the block:

enter image description here

  • Question: Is it possible to remove the blue arrow linking the exit() block with the next one ?

  • Question: Is it possible to enhance the disassembly if IDA by specifying exit as a block end ?

  • Good luck on the NSC challenge ;-)

It is possible to define a function exit as "no return" function. This should fix the problem.

To do it you should find exit function, right click on it, choose "edit function" and mark "Does not return" checkbox.
