Type - subsystem


The appquit subsystem is designed to handle applications exiting, either through a menu, or reception of the WIMP task shutdown message.

The subsystem maintains a number of 'edited files', which if zero allows an application to terminate when requested, or if non-zero will call the unique handler function, whose purpose is to report the number of opened files and give the user to actually terminate the program, or to abort the termination.

The application does not have to have actual editied files; this is merely a concept. For example, for a terminal emulator, you could have 'opened windows' instead.

appquit_handler (function pointer)


Definition of an appquit handler function.
