21.5 Interrupting evaluation

The button interrupts evaluation in the Listener. The break gesture key stroke Alt+Ctrl+C (and the Interrupt Lisp button, in the GC Monitor window in the Motif IDE only) can also be used.

This is useful for stopping execution in the middle of a loop, or for debugging. When the interrupt is processed, the debugger is entered, with a continue restart available.
