A list of the ports to be leashed. A single keyword can be given without enclosing it in a list.
Some of the keywords denote a set of ports:
Stands for all five port.
Stands for the Exception, Call and Redo ports.
Stands for the Exception and Call ports.
Stands for all ports but Exit.
Stands for no ports.
The leashing mode only applies to procedures that do not have spypoints on them, and it determines which ports of such procedures are leashed. By default, all five ports are leashed. On arrival at a leashed port, the debugger will stop to allow you to look at the execution state and decide what to do next. At unleashed ports, the goal is displayed but program execution does not stop to allow user interaction.

| ?- leash([call,redo]).
