handling a keyboard interrupt
Date: Fri, 20 Apr 90 17:31:13 EDT
I think you want to look at the documentation in the section
called Conditions. You don't want to handle keyboard
interrupts; you want to provide your own handler for
conditions like sys:abort. It takes some time staring at
examples to figure out this condition stuff but it is
cleaner than what I think you are thinking of.
This is true; however, with lucid 3.0 which I've been using lately, the
condition stuff does just about everything EXCEPT handle keyboard
interrupts. It's too bad they didn't/couldn't hook it into the CL
condition stuff. Anyway, I'll do this for the symbolics code. thanks....
