Jump to the abort restart.

The abort restart is the only restart that is established at top level. It is used by R as a top-level target, most notably when an error is issued (see abort()) that no handler is able to deal with (see with_handlers()).

Usage
rst_abort()
See Also

rst_jump(), abort() and cnd_abort().

Examples
# The `abort` restart is a bit special in that it is always
# registered in a R session. You will always find it on the restart
# stack because it is established at top level:
rst_list()

# You can use the `above` restart to jump to top level without
# signalling an error:
## Not run: 
# fn <- function() {
#   cat("aborting...\n")
#   rst_abort()
#   cat("This is never called\n")
# }
# {
#   fn()
#   cat("This is never called\n")
# }
# ## End(Not run)

# The `above` restart is the target that R uses to jump to top
# level when critical errors are signalled:
## Not run: 
# {
#   abort("error")
#   cat("This is never called\n")
# }
# ## End(Not run)

# If another `abort` restart is specified, errors are signalled as
# usual but then control flow resumes with from the new restart:
## Not run: 
# out <- NULL
# {
#   out <- with_restarts(abort("error"), abort = function() "restart!")
#   cat("This is called\n")
# }
# cat("`out` has now become:", out, "\n")
# ## End(Not run)
