public class Batchmode
extends AbstractAssignment

This class provides an implementation for the primitive \batchmode. It does simply nothing, but as a side effect all prefixes are zeroed and the interaction mode is set to batchmode.

The Primitive \batchmode

This primitive sets the interaction mode to batch mode. In batch mode the processing is terminated if the program needs input from the terminal or an error occurs. The output to the terminal is reduced to a minimum.

The setting of the interaction mode is an assignment. The mode is always processed globally. This means it does not interact with the group concept.


The formal description of this primitive is the following:
      → \batchmode

Description copied from class: AbstractAssignment
The method assign is the core of the functionality of execute(). This method is preferable to execute() since the execute() method provided in this class takes care of \afterassignment and \globaldefs as well.

Specified by:
assign in class AbstractAssignment
prefix - the prefix controlling the execution
context - the interpreter context
source - the token source
typesetter - the typesetter
InterpreterException - in case of an error
