The quit function tells the AIS executable to (a) exit the current running Lisp code back to the console level, or (b) exit the current running Lisp and the current AIS executable back to the operating system level.


The quit function is used to exit a running Lisp program.

For instance the following Lisp code shows how to exit a running program.

(defun foo(Integer:N)
(loop for n from 0 until N do
  (if (> n 1000) then (quit))
  (writeln n)
  ) ; end loop




(quit exitSW)

Arguments Name Type Description
Argument:exitSWBoolean The exitSW, if true, tells AIS to exit the current running executable and return to the operating system level.

Returns: The return value is always ignored



Arguments Name Type Description

Returns: The return value is always ignored and control is returned to the console level.
