I should have been clearer, sorry-- I'm trying to exit from an "inner" function which might be several levels deep, returning straight to the R prompt. To be specific, I'm trying to clean up the "No Error in..." message in my 'debug' package-- the "No " prefix being my original workaround to avoid an unnecessarily alarming message.
