LOGOUT command

The LOGOUT command ends a timesharing job.


     @LOGOUT /FAST n


     /FAST is an optional switch  that  prevents  processing  of  your
           LOGOUT.CMD and the system's LOGOUT.CMD files.

     n     is an optional job number.  Specify n only when logging out
           a job other than your attached job.


     System Use Under Current Account

          The system acknowledges a valid LOGOUT command  by  printing
          your  job  number,  user  name,  current  account,  terminal
          number, and the current date and time.  Then  it  shows  the
          total  amount  of  CPU  time  you  used  during the terminal
          session and the total length of time  you  were  logged  in,
          followed  by  the account of CPU time used under the current
          account and the length of time you were logged in under this

     LOGOUT.CMD Output

          Before logging you out, the system processes the commands in
          your  login  directory's  LOGOUT.CMD  file  and the system's
          LOGOUT.CMD file and displays any output from these commands.
          Then,  after execution of each file, the system displays the
          message "End of LOGOUT.CMD", unless the last command in  the
          file is a TAKE command.


     Expunging Your Log-in and Connected Directories

          Before logging you out,  the  system  expunges  any  deleted
          files from your log-in and connected directories, and prints
          a  message  if  either  directory  is  still  exceeding  its
          assigned permanent disk quota.

     Logging Out Other Jobs

          By specifying a job number you can log  out  any  other  job
          logged  in under the same user name as your attached job.  A
          user with Wheel or Operator capabilities enabled can log out
          any  job  on  the system.  Whenever you log out another job,
          the system prints the job's user name, terminal number,  and
          current  program.   You must then confirm the LOGOUT command
          with an extra RETURN.

          When a job is logged out by another job, the logout  command
          files are not processed.


     A Final TAKE Command

          To suppress the display of the message "End  of  LOGOUT.CMD"
          after  execution  of  your  LOGOUT.CMD  file,  make the last
          command in the file a TAKE command with  no  arguments.   Be
          sure  the  file  contains  only  one  RETURN  after the TAKE

     Errors in LOGOUT.CMD

          If there is an error in a command in your  LOGOUT.CMD  file,
          the system processes the commands up to the one in error and
          cancels the LOGOUT command.  To log out, correct  the  error
          in  the  command  file  or  give the LOGOUT command with the
          /FAST switch.

Effect on Memory and Terminal

     The LOGOUT command clears memory and leaves your terminal in  the
     state  before log-in.  LOGOUT n does not affect memory and leaves
     your terminal at TOPS-20 command level.
