Quitting Applications

The QUIT and QuitGS calls have been modified to support the GNO/ME process scheme. Quitting to another application, whether by specifying a pathname or by popping the return stack, is accomplished with execve(2). When there are no entries on the return stack, the process is simply killed. See the GS/OS Reference Manual for more details on how the Quit stack works.
