I get a bad crash with this kind of sequence :
v0.9 Alpha , Build 938
 << 2 DUP2 MOD NOT << KILL >> IFT >>

try 8 and the program for example.
EDIT : I try again and it works nows :/ But i'm sure there was a problem.

I could not reproduce a crash either on my calc (same build) or the simulator. I even debugged step by step with the simulator and couldn't find anything wrong. Doesn't mean it's bug free, but at least nothing obvious. When you say "bad crash": what was it? data abort?

After the KILL the stack is not correct state (if im not wrong ?) . Same thing with HALT. But if you generate an error, like 0 INV instead of KILL or HALT the stak is fine.

There's a difference between newRPL and classic RPL in everything that has to do with halting and continuing code. KILL does not terminate the current program, but a previously halted one. This difference is because of the more advanced breakpoints in newRPL, and the possibility to use RPL handlers for hardware interrupts like timers. The interrupt handler should be able to kill the main program without killing the handler.
The inconsistencies you noticed is probably because you expected the code to stop after KILL, but it continued running and changed the stack.
But in reality, you are using KILL as EXIT. I just implemented an EXIT command that ends the innermost loop (works like break), or innermost program. Will come out in the next update for you to test.

Actually, your code could be much faster using NEXTPRIME to find the next divisor to test. Start from 2 and test the division with all the next prime factors until sqrt(N).

I just verified that CONT is not bound to LS-On (or any key). No wonder you had "difficulty" :-). I'll add it for the next update.
