User Level Required: interpreter
This command is used to terminate FriCAS and return to the operating system. Other than by redoing all your computations or by using the )history )restore command to try to restore your working environment, you cannot return to FriCAS in the same state.
)pquit differs from the )quit in that it always asks for confirmation that you want to terminate FriCAS (the p is for protected). quit When you enter the )pquit command, FriCAS responds
If you respond with y or yes, you will see the message
and FriCAS will terminate and return you to the operating system (or the environment from which you invoked the system). If you responded with something other than y or yes, then the message
You have chosen to remain in the FriCAS interactive environment.
will be displayed and, indeed, FriCAS would still be running.
