process-warn-on-killing: preference variable

Default value: 0

By default, when you kill a buffer with an active concurrent process (or a telnet or ssh buffer with an active connection), Epsilon asks it to exit using the exit-process command, which types "exit" to it. If that doesn't cause it to exit, Epsilon asks if you want to kill the buffer anyway, disconnecting it from the process (which it tries to kill in stronger ways). (With telnet buffers, Epsilon simply disconnects, and doesn't send an "exit" command.)

Set this variable to 1 if you want Epsilon to prompt before doing anything, when a buffer you've said to kill contains an active process. If you confirm that it's OK to try to exit the process, Epsilon will then proceed as above.

Set this variable to 2 if you want Epsilon to simply display an error message when you try to kill a buffer with an active process.
