I'm using a Loop with a quote-quad. Just inputting some letters. But I
can't break out of the loop when I went to terminate the program.
With a regular quad, just a right arrow breaks out of the loop.
I have tried this with an old free APL, namely APLSE, but also APL 9.1
and APL 10 and I can't stop the loop. Crudely, I just terminate the DOS
windows under Windows and that kills it. But that is not a classy
Any ideas? Nothing seems to work. Not even a CONTROL-BREAK. I can use a
CONTROL-ESC to get to the DOS window level but am surprised that a
right arrow does not break the loop as it does with a regular quad used
for inputting numbers.
Strange. At first I thought it was because APLSE does not have the
quote-quad used for letters. But it was the same thing in APL 9.1 and
APL 10. I apparently wrote the program in APL 9.1 but like to run it in
APLSE because of the easier use of the APL character set. What a pain
that is. Different versions of APL have different character sets for
the keyboards. too bad it never got standardized. Drives me more nuts
than I need to be.
Thanks for any inputs :)
