    Command:

    SYNOPSIS

           ctrlaltdel hard|soft
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Based  on  examination of the linux/kernel/sys.c code, it is clear that
           there are two supported functions that the  Ctrl-Alt-Del  sequence  can
           perform:  a  hard reset, which immediately reboots the computer without
           calling sync(2) and without any other preparation; and  a  soft  reset,
           which  sends the SIGINT (interrupt) signal to the init process (this is
           always the process with PID 1).  If this option is  used,  the  init(8)
           program must support this feature.  Since there are now several init(8)
           programs in the Linux community, please consult the  documentation  for
           the version that you are currently using.
    
           ctrlaltdel is usually used in the /etc/rc.local file.
