Usage Guidelines

This command causes the EXEC to issue the exit command when the last connection closes. The autohangup command is useful for the UNIX-to-UNIX Copy Program (UUCP) applications that automatically disconnect lines because UUCP scripts cannot issue the exit command to hang up the telephone.


The following example enables automatic line disconnect on lines 5 through 10:
