REBOOT(2) REBOOT(2) NAME reboot - reboot system or halt processor SYNOPSIS #include <sys/reboot.h> reboot(how) int how; DESCRIPTION Reboot reboots or halts the system. Various options are specified in how: RB_PANIC Cause a crash dump to be written. RB_NOSYNC Don't finish pending disk writes (a la sync(2)). RB_HALT Don't reboot; leave the processor in a tight loop with interrupts disabled. RB_SINGLE Reboot single-user. RB_ASKNAME Arrange for the boot program to ask the name of the system to be booted. By default, disk writes are finished, and the system is rebooted multi-user from /unix on unit 0 of the root device. SEE ALSO crash(8), init(8), reboot(8) BUGS Of dubious utility; it's better just to use the console. Most of the flags are silly.
