In the version of lmman on system 44.3, with microcode 692, on LISP Machine Two:
The official convention on termination items in menus is:
Do It: Do the thing that it says here to do, make the menu go away.
(This is for when things are not done immediately, but are postponed
until the entire setup is specified. For example, Split Screen.)
Abort: Do NOT do the thing it says here to do, if anything, and make
the menu go away.
Exit: I have already done the things I want to do. Make the menu go away.
(This is for when things happen immediately, rather than being postponed.)
Done: A cross between Do It and Exit, when some action is immediate
and some is postponed. This is the positive way to finish.
Quit: A cross between Abort and Exit, when one is at the top level
of a program.
