To write unique code to handle input to or situations arising
in a program that are somehow distinguished from normal
processing. This would be used for processing of mode
switches or interrupt characters in an interactive interface
(as opposed, say, to text entry or normal commands), or for
processing of hidden flags in the input of a batch program
or filter.
