halt

The Prolog session is ended (the same as Control-D at the top-level loop).

Description

Used to exit from the Prolog session. If user_end/0 is defined and global, it is called. All buffers are flushed, streams are closed and ECLiPSe exits. Zero as status code is returned to the operating system. halt is identical with exit(0).
