In zwei in System 79.34, ZMail 40.7, Remote-File 2.0, LMFILE-Remote 5.3,
Tester 20.6, Reasoning Utility Package 1.0,
Experimental Plan Calculus 1.0, microcode 849, 60.45Hz, on Lisp Machine Twenty-two:
typing return at the prompt System to patch: beeps and returns.
It should not allow you to get out without aborting.
It only does this when the buffer you're patching from isn't associated with
a file that is part of any loaded system, since otherwise it knows what system
In any event, I don't think that I agree (at the moment anyway) that it
shouldn't do what it does. I don't think it's good policy to have modes
which demand a response and won't let you go; such things can be terribly
confusing for new users of a feature.
