I tried it and it failed (the IDE locked up)...then I added the obvious
(exit to top). And, just to make sure things were back where they're
supposed to be, I added "set allowInterrupts to true". Badda-bing!
That did it!
Though not a biggie, I'm still struggling with understanding the logic:
set allowInterrupts to false = allow the user to interrupt. Sounds
backwards to me. :-D
put empty into msg
set the allowInterrupts to false
if the interrupt
else add 1 to msg
put "I'm interrupted" into msg
set the allowInterrupts to true
exit to top
