Syntax Definition
$ET[RAP]

contains code which is invoked in the event an error condition occurs. See 6.3.2- Error processing. When a process is initiated, but before any commands are processed, the value of $ETrap is the empty string.

The value of $ETrap may be stacked with the New command; New $ETrap has the effect of saving the current instantiation of $ETrap and creating a new instantiation initialized with the same value.

The value of $ETrap is changed with the Set command. Changing the value of $ETrap with a Set command instantiates a new trap; it does not save the old trap.

A Quit from $ETrap, either explicit or implicit (i.e., Set $ETrap="Do ^ETRAP" has an implicit Quit at its end with an empty argument, if appropriate) will function as if a Quit had been issued at the "current" $STack. Behavior at the "popped" level will be determined by the value of $ECode. If $ECode is empty, execution proceeds normally. Otherwise, $ETrap is invoked at the new level.
