Break in

If, for any reason, ADAM goes dead and you don't get the ADAM:> prompt, try the SEND CON: command. It has a similar effect to <CTRL/Y> or <CTRL/C> on the VAX. CON: is a mandatory parameter, and is the name of the ADAM terminal.

This command should only be used when there is no ADAM prompt. It can be issued at other times (e.g. to halt a command that is producing a lot of output), if you first press the BREAK key and the Operating System's ``*'' prompt is obtained.

Sometimes it is necessary to type an extra c/r to make the command work. On rarer occasions it may be necessary to issue the command more than once for it to take effect. If it still does not work, type CANCEL and then start ADAM again.
