$BatchInput

$BatchInput
is True if input in the current session is being fed directly to the Mathematica kernel in batch mode.
  • $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.
