Default Prompt
The Default Prompt asks a question and supplies an answer. The answer either reflects the most common response associated with the question or, data (a value) that was previously entered.
Do you really want to Halt? YES//
If < Enter> is pressed, the computer recognizes the “YES” default as the accepted answer, and will halt/stop. Notice the “//” after the “YES.” This means that you can change the default answer to something else. In this example, if you entered “NO” after the “//,” the system would permit you to continue working on the computer.
