How to reboot a sun ultra running solaris 2.5.1 from the

perl -e 'print "\e[1J"'

on the console without starting X11. This will send your ultra
to kingdom come and only a power-on reset can get it back ...

SunOS xxx 5.5.1 Generic_103640-06 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-1

It simply clears the screen on the above system ...

bad trap and panic induced on :-

SunOS xxx 5.5.1 Generic sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-1
