    I concur -- my programs use the numbers all the time.  The
    Linux man page for shutdown list the numbers in the
    DESCRIPTION section and notes under BUGS

        The  numerical  how flags should be replaced by the
        Single Unix-mandated SHUT_RD, SHUT_WR, and SHUT_RDWR
        flags.
