Unix Version 7 - man page for exit (v7 section 2)

EXIT(2) 			       System Calls Manual				  EXIT(2)

NAME
       exit - terminate process

SYNOPSIS
       exit(status)
       int status;

       _exit(status)
       int status;

DESCRIPTION
       Exit  is  the  normal means of terminating a process.  Exit closes all the process's files
       and notifies the parent process if it is executing a wait.  The low-order 8 bits of status
       are available to the parent process.

       This call can never return.

       The  C  function exit may cause cleanup actions before the final `sys exit'.  The function
       _exit circumvents all cleanup.

SEE ALSO
       wait(2)

ASSEMBLER
       (exit = 1.)
       (status in r0)
