I can honestly say I've never heard "abend" in my whole life. If I ever
encountered it in a manual, I'd have to go reaching for the dictionary
probably (if I couldn't figure it out by context but even then I'd have
doubts).
Why, even as I was spell-checking this email, the checker didn't
recognize "abend." I think that's an important indicator as to what's in
common use and what isn't. Not that we should strictly adhere to, of all
things, computer spell checkers but if we're trying to chose between one
word and another, a spell checker could tip the scales.

Is it a term mostly used outside of America?
