startup.prg in your Algosim program directory:

If this program returns
false, the front end will not close. Hence, you may use a script like the following to display a confirmation dialog box:
MessageBox("Do you want to exit Algosim?", '("&Yes", "&No"), "Yes", "No") = "Yes"
The best way to create and edit these scripts is to use the Program editor. To create one of these scripts, press Ctrl+N to create a new program and then save it as either
exit.prg. To open one of these, press Ctrl+O.
