abort

Command: abort


Description

This function can be run by the user to end all NEST processes as
gracefully as possible. If NEST is compiled without MPI support
this will just call quit_i. If compiled with MPI support it will
call MPI_Abort which will kill all processes of the application
and thus prevents deadlocks. The exitcode is userabort in both
cases (see statusdict/exitcodes).
