The prompt statement in a macro prompts the user with a specified text string. The user is then given the option to either continue (by entering c, or stopping the process (by entering q). No other characters are allowed.
|prompt.text||Displays text that requires user input. This option has the same conventions and syntax as the display command.|

If a c is entered, the save command is executed. The macro stops immediately if a q is provided.
