Shut down a GAP session
Shuts down the currently active GAP session if there is one. With recent
versions of ECLiPSe it is not normally necessary to call this explicitly;
GAP will be shut down automatically before the ECLiPSe session ends.
However, there may be circumstances where one wishes to force GAP to shut
down before the session ends, and on older versions of ECLiPSe a manual
shutdown is required in order to terminate the GAP process and clean up
the named pipes used for communication.
