halt(8)								       halt(8)

Name
       halt - stop the processor

Syntax
       /etc/halt [ -n ] [ -q ] [ -y ]

Description
       The  command  writes  out  sandbagged information to the disks and then
       stops the processor.  The machine does not reboot, even	if  the	 auto-
       reboot switch is set on the console.

Options
       -n   Prevents the sync before stopping.

       -q   Causes a quick halt, no graceful shutdown is attempted.

       -y   Halts the system from a dialup.

Restrictions
       It is very difficult to halt a VAX, as the machine wants to then reboot
       itself.	A rather tight loop suffices.
