[an error occurred while processing this directive] $BatchInput

  • $BatchInput is True if input in the current session is being fed directly to the Mathematica kernel in batch mode.
  • $BatchInput is True if input is being taken from a file.
  • $BatchInput can be reset during a Mathematica session.
  • When $BatchInput is True, Mathematica terminates if it ever receives an interrupt, does not discard input when blank lines are given, and terminates when it receives end-of-file.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.13.5.
