Suggestions for the doc of *Err

Hi, I was trying to avoid the «? prompt» in case of an error. I know that this REPL is sometimes useful, but not for my use case. I eventually succeeded with (de *Err (bye)). During this journey, I noticed a few things. About *Err, the doc says in: http://www.software-lab.de/doc/refE.html#*Err

Location of an error

Hi all, I emulated a «while» loop with a function defined with a `de`, say `my_while`. It has a body that allows a user defined body (the user is a developer!) to be executed, thanks to 'run. Now when the code of the user/dev contains a mistake, the location of the error is always at the line
