Stopping all apps on the target

For testing purposes or if your system doesn't have an HMI, you can stop applications from the command line using the stop-apps script.

Under normal circumstances, however, your HMI stops applications by issuing a stop message to PPS (see "Stopping an application").

To stop all running apps on your system:
Run the following from the command line:


The stop-apps script echoes this stop command to the PPS object:

"msg::stop\ndat::" > /pps/services/launcher/control

The Application Launcher service shuts down all the running apps.

For information about Application Launcher and the PPS control object it uses, see launcher in the System Services Reference and /pps/services/launcher/control in the PPS Objects Reference.
