boot - Shuts down and reboots


boot [ option ] [ app | slot ]


Using boot is the preferred method for taking the system offline. Without any arguments, boot shuts down the system and reboots.

Boot recognizes these options:


Enters BASIC immediate mode.


Does not hangup if there is a connection.


Quits BASIC and returns to the operating system.


Restarts the system by running the $/ProLine program.

If boot is given a numeric argument from 1 to 7, it attempts to boot the computer from the device in that slot.

If the argument is a filename of an executable file, that file is launched.
