Exit

Keys

^8 - Exit
^U - Exit

Function

Exit operates slightly differently, depending on whether the editor was entered from either DEMOS or Basic. In either case, pressing Exit clears the label line and presents the question:

Exit Y/N?

Answering N aborts the command and returns the cursor to Its previous position.

Answering Y when entered from DEMOS exits from the editor with no change to any file. Any alterations are lost.

Answering Y when entered from BASIC re-processes the file into BASIC encoded form and leaves the edited Basic source in the workspace for execution.

Then Exit is in progress:

** Wait
