This is a wrapper over the POSIX _exit() system call. Calling this function\n\
will terminate the running process immediatelly, bypassing normal Octave\n\
terminating sequence. It is suitable to terminate a forked process. It\n\
should be considered expert-only and not to be used in normal code.\n\
