EXIT


Type: Internal (2.0 and later)

Syntax:

EXIT

Purpose: Exits a secondary command processor.*

Discussion

This command can be used when you are running an application program and want to start the DOS command processor, then return to your program. For example, to look at a directory on drive B while running an application program, you must start the command processor by typing COMMAND in response to the default drive prompt. You can now type the DIR command and DOS will display the directory for the default disk. When you type EXIT, you return to the previous level (your application program). 

*EXIT may also be used to close a DOS window opened while running Windows.

Example

If you start a new command processor by entering

command /c

then you can return to the previous command processor by entering

exit
