The command for ending a Unix session is exit. Another way to
log out is to type <ctrl-D>. To avoid accidentally ending your
Unix session with an inadvertent <ctrl-D>, type the command
set ignoreeof at the beginning of each Unix session. Most lazy,
or should I say efficient, people don't like doing this every time they
log in. In Login files I will discuss how to get
around this threat to our slothfulness.
