EXIT



EXIT

     Terminates the Command Interpreter.

SYNTAX

     EXIT


PARAMETERS

     None.


OPERATION

     The MPE/iX command interpreter can be run as a program by entering
     CI.PUB.SYS, or simply by entering CI, as follows:

     CI
     MPE/XL CI A.00.00 Copyright Hewlett-Packard

     To determine what level of the command interpreter you are in, use
     the SHOWVAR HPCIDEPTH command.  This command terminates the Command
Interpreter. If the Command Interpreter is the root CI, EXIT is
equivalent to BYE and ends the session. Otherwise, EXIT returns to
the previous process. Thus EXIT may be used to "back out" of
Command Interpreter processes (called by level). Note that BYE
always ends a session, regardless of CI level.

This command is not available in BREAK or from a program.
[Break] has no effect on this command.

EXAMPLE(S)

     The following example show how to determine what level of the CI
     you are in and then, using the EXIT command, to back out to the
     root CI:

          SHOWVAR HPCIDEPTH
          HPCIDEPTH=2
EXIT
:
SHOWVAR HPCIDEPTH HPCIDEPTH=1


To withdraw from the second level to the first, use the EXIT
command. To withdraw from the session from any level, use the BYE
command.
