Re: Real difference between shutdown(8) and poweroff (8)

  what'is the real difference between:shutdown(8),
  poweroff(8),reboot(8) and halt(8) ?

The man pages are basically quite useful.

Basically, shutdown causes rc.d shutdown scripts to run, resulting in
graceful termination of system activities, and reboot/halt do not.  One
should only use shutdown (perhaps with -r or -p), absent unusual
