Subject [jira] [Commented] (APEXCORE-559) Support quit which should behave the same as "exit"
Date Thu, 13 Oct 2016 17:35:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/APEXCORE-559?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15572630#comment-15572630

Sanjay M Pujare commented on APEXCORE-559:

bash is a Linux/Unix command line shell and emulates the original Unix sh . It probably wants
to limit the reserved words as shell commands so I can understand why they don't support quit.
But most application level CLIs support quit and I was surprised to notice Apex CLI doesn't.
BTW, "quit" and "exit" can have different semantics and I am okay to keep that difference
if it applies here. For example, "quit" means abort whatever is going on and just quit whereas
"exit" is allowed only if the system is quiescent.

>            Priority: Trivial
> Most CLIs accept both quit and exit and we should enhance the Apex CLI to accept "quit"
which should have the same semantics as "exit".

> Invalid command 'quit'. Type "help" for list of commands
