I first thought that doing Quit in a cell, or Evaluation->Quit kernel, is supposed to remove all Global variables, but I have a case where this is not happening, then I read that there is a command Quit from the menu to also shut down the front end, so I wanted to try that to see if that will clear those variables, which I suppose are saved by the front end. (I know I can ofcourse just type Remove["Globals`*"], but was looking looking at what seems like a symbols leakage problem with Manipulate.
Any one knows how to close the front end please?
I can't find this Quit command from the menu, which is supposed to be different from the Quit for the kernel? I only see Quit kernel in the menu. But when I try that, these variables are not cleared!
Again, the reason I wanted to do the above is because not all variables are cleared when I restart the kernel (either by Quit or by stopping the kernel from the menu:
Btw, according to this answer here Quit the kernel is supposed to clear all variables ! but this is not the case with me here. ps. I never even knew before there was a
Quit command for the front end.
ps. I will be happy to post the code that generates this if needed.
According to help message above, it said there is Quit menu item to close the from end, but on windows, V 8.04, I only see Quit kernel, which is the same as Quit typed in the notebook.
