       rrpc_shutdown - shut down a server

       #include <idl/c/rrpc.h>

       void rrpc_$shutdown(handle, status)
       handle_t handle;
       status_$t *status;

       handle A remote procedure call (RPC) handle.

       status The completion status.  If the completion status returned in is equal to status_$ok , then the routine that supplied it was success-

       The routine shuts down a server, if the server allows it.  A server can use the routine to allow or disallow remote shutdown.

       This section lists status codes for errors returned by this routine in

	      You send an request to a server that has not issued an call.

       On the client side, because of the way the calls are defined and implemented in the run-time library you  must  explicitly  call  into  the
       entry  point  vector  table  for  the  interface to send an request across the network. The following is an example of a call that works as
       (*rrpc_$client_epv.rrpc_$shutdown)(handle, &status);

       The server side stub routine calls the entry point on behalf of the client.  The results of the call are then passed back to the client.

       Before making the shutdown call, the server must have previously executed the following call:
       rpc_$allow_remote_shutdown((unsigned long) TRUE,NULL,&status);

       If the server has not allowed remote shutdown, the call returns an status code.
