Kawa normally keeps running as long as there is an active read-eval-print loop still awaiting input or there is an unfinished other computation (such as requested by a ‘-e’ or ‘-f’ option).
To close a read-eval-print-loop, you can type the special
#!eof at top level. This is recognized as end-of-file.
Typing an end-of-file character (normally ctrl-D under Unix)
should also work, but that depends on your operating system
and terminal interface.
If the read-eval-print-loop is in a new window, you can select ‘Close’ from the ‘File’ menu.
To exit the entire Kawa session, call the
exit procedure (with 0 or 1 integer arguments).
