Emdedding my script in to exit command

How can I call my shell script, when I execute 'exit' command?
For eg. I am logging out the root login by 'exit' command. My script 'colinfo' shold execute before logging out. I don't want to use any wrapper script.

In bash you can put the command in .bash_logout but ksh does not have this facility.

In ksh you can use the trap command in your .profile to call your script:

trap '. /your_directory/logout_script' EXIT

strait from the bash man page:

When a login shell exits, bash reads and executes commands from the
file ~/.bash_logout, if it exists.

other shells have similar mechanism.
