UPDATE(VIII) 11/1/73 UPDATE(VIII) NAME update - periodically update the super block SYNOPSIS update DESCRIPTION Update is a program that executes the sync primitive every 30 seconds. This insures that the file system is fairly up to date in case of a crash. This command should not be executed directly, but should be executed out of the initialization shell command file. See sync(II) for details. SEE ALSO sync(II), init(VII) BUGS There is a system bug which, it is suspected, may be aggravated by this program. Until further notice, update should not be run.
