NAME
       sync - update the super block

SYNOPSIS
       sync

DESCRIPTION
       sync  executes  the  sync  system  primitive.  If  the  system is to be
       stopped,	sync must be called to insure file system integrity.  It  will
       flush  all previously unwritten system buffers out to disk, thus	assur-
       ing that	all file modifications up to that point	 will  be  saved.  See
       sync(2) for details.
