How to tell a C++ programme to quit ?


Hi !
I have written a small C++ programme & am loading it through a init script. I'm using kill to signal it to quit. Is there any better method by which the programme could know this and save its important data.


With regards

man signal

you can't stop the KILL signal.
Use TERM or HUP

You could send a less "devastating" signal to your program which can be cought. Have a look at man 1 kill and man 7 signal.
