Re: Re: debugging


Hello dan,
what do you want to see?
Write a program, which has the following statement as first statement:
$MessagePrePrint = (Print["Error -> Quit"]; Quit[])&;
(The right side of the assignment statement is a "pure function")
Then write some statements, one or more of which are erroneous and some
Print statements between.
