$IgnoreEOF

FilledSmallSquare $IgnoreEOF specifies whether Mathematica should terminate when it receives an end-of-file character as input.

FilledSmallSquare $IgnoreEOF defaults to False.

FilledSmallSquare $IgnoreEOF is assumed to be False if the input to Mathematica comes from a file, rather than an interactive device.

FilledSmallSquare See Section 2.14.1 and Section A.7.5.

FilledSmallSquare See also: Exit, Quit, $BatchInput.
