Restart ABORT

Data Arguments Required

None.

Description

The intent of the abort restart is to allow return to the innermost "command level." Implementors are encouraged to make sure that there is always a restart named abort around any user code so that user code can call abort at any time and expect something reasonable to happen; exactly what the reasonable thing is may vary somewhat. Typically, in an interactive listener, the invocation of abort returns to the Lisp reader phase of the Lisp read-eval-print loop, though in some batch or multi-processing situations there may be situations in which having it kill the running process is more appropriate.
