     ENDSESSION(1)	     Silicon Graphics		 ENDSESSION(1)

     NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
	  endsession - terminates a login session

     SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  endsession [ -f ] [ -display displayname ]

     DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
	  endsession terminates	a login	session	initiated  by  xdm  by
	  removing  the	 session property placed on the	root window by
	  reaper.  Removal of this property is a signal	 to  xdm  that
	  the  session	should	be  closed.  This results in immediate
	  termination of the current login  session.  endsession  uses
	  the  environment  variable DISPLAY to	determine what session
	  to terminate.

	  Command line options are available  to  change  the  display
	  variable  and	 to  suppress  the  confirmation  window.  The
	  command line options are:

	  -display displayname
		  Overrides the	environment variable DISPLAY.  Changes
		  which	session	will be	terminated.

	  -f	  Surpresses the confirmation window, endsession  will
		  just run. (The 'f' stands for	"force.")

	  endsession has no effect on "failsafe" login sessions	 since
	  reaper  is  not run. Such sessions are terminated by exiting
	  the login shell.

     WARNING    [Toc]    [Back]
	  Execution of endsession causes the immediate termination  of
	  the session specified	by DISPLAY.
