abort


Name:
abort - Abort all NEST processes gracefully.  
Paramteres:
exitcode - The exitcode to quit with
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).
