Programs can be run once or run multiple times (recycled). A Program that is run once will remain in the Halted state indefinitely once it has run. The normal course of action would be to delete it following the inspection of its terminal results.

Recyclable Programs may have a limited or unlimited cycle count. These Programs may require a reset step to transition from the Halted state to the Ready state. This allows for replenishing resources or reinitializing parameters prior to restarting the Program. The Program Control MethodReset” triggers this state transition and any associated actions or effects.
