quit

Terminates Scilab or decreases the pause level

Calling Sequence

quit

Description

The quit command has two different meanings depending on the calling context:

If there is no pause active,

then the quit command makes Scilab terminate, even if the command is called inside a function.

If there is a pause active,

then the quit command makes abort of the instructions started at this pause level and terminates the current pause level.

Examples

// quit Scilab
function foo(x)
if x then 
   quit
end
endfunction
foo(%t) //quits scilab

//terminate instruction started in a pause context
function foo(x)
if x then
   quit
end
endfunction
pause
foo(%t) //returns at the main prompt level

function foo1(x)
mprintf('P1\n')
if x then 
   pause
   mprintf('P2\n')
end
mprintf('P3\n')
endfunction
     
foo1(%t) //enter quit at the following prompt
