   * **RPL Break** - This is the most common way to interrupt programs, it is performed by pressing simultaneously **ON-A-C**. The screen will show a message and the soft menu will display several options. ''​Cont''​ will continue the task as if it had never been interrupted (press **A** to select this choice). ''​Exit''​ will end the current RPL program and return to the stack (press **B** to select this choice). Notice that this option might leave the stack with objects the program was using internally, and the user will need to clean up the stack manually. ''​*Warmstart*''​ will completely restart the RPL engine (press either **C** or **D** while at the same time holding any one of the **Shift** keys to select this choice). A warmstart is only needed if the running program leaves the system unusable. Finally, ''​%%**Reset**%%''​ not only restarts the RPL engine, but also causes a reset of the calculator hardware (press either **E** or **F** while at the same time holding any one of the **Shift** keys to select this choice). This is only necessary if the hardware malfunctions or does not respond.   * **RPL Break** - This is the most common way to interrupt programs, it is performed by pressing simultaneously **ON-A-C**.

-  * **User Break** - This interrupts the entire system, not only the RPL engine, and it is performed by pressing simultaneously **ON-A-F**. ''​Cont''​ will continue the task as if it had never been interrupted (press **A** to select this choice). ''​*Clear Mem*''​ will completely wipe out the entire memory. This is a dangerous and unrecoverable procedure, the only way to recover is through backups. For safety, press either **C** or **D** while at the same time **holding all three shift keys (Left, Right and Alpha)** in order to clear the memory. Pressing only one of the shift keys will perform a warmstart but not clear the memory.
