Fwd: reboot command behaves different on Linux
Wed Mar 20 14:51:00 GMT 2013
The message below never made it through to the list, according to
<http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2013-03/>, probably because of the
What is the best way to share the code I've written for the shutdown package???

I know. But the symlinks "reboot", "hibernate" and "suspend" don't
react as I would have expected.
I have attached a patched/rewritten version of the shutdown command.
It also adds support for a symlink named "halt" and "poweroff". It is
up to Corinna if she likes my version or not.
$ ./halt --help
Usage: halt [OPTION]...
Bring the system down.
-f, --force Forces the execution.
-x, --exitex Use ExitWindowsEx rather than InitateSystemShutdown.
--help Display this help and exit.
--version Output version information and exit.
If wanted I'm willing to create basic shutdown.8 and reboot.8 man pages.
