After a critical suspend, the system may be unstable, and you can use the resume command to help you recover from the suspension. change power Invoked when system power is changed from AC to battery or from battery to AC. change battery Invoked when the APM BIOS driver reports that the battery is low. change capability Invoked when the APM BIOS driver

for defining a function follows the Bourne shell: name ( ) { function body's code come here } Functions are invoked just as are regular shell built-in commands or external commands. The command line parameters $1, $2, and so on receive the function's arguments, temporarily hiding the global values of $1, etc. For example: # fatal --- print an error message and die: fatal ( ) { # defining function fatal echo "$0: fatal error:" "$@" >&2 # messages to standard error exit 1 } ... if [ $#

compared. The revisions must be specified. In the third form, source can be a URL or working-copy item, in which case the corresponding URL is used. This URL, at revisions N and M, defines the two sources to be compared. wcpath is the working-copy path that will receive the changes. If wcpath is omitted, a default value of "." is assumed, unless the sources have identical basenames that match a file within ".", in which case, the differences are applied to that file. Unlike svn diff, this
