ENDSHELL Internal
Purpose: To end a Shell process.
Format: ENDSHELL
Template: (none)
Path: Internal
ENDSHELL ends a Shell process.

The Shell process can also be ended by ENDCLI or clicking on the Close gadget.

ENDSHELL should only be used when the Workbench is loaded or another Shell is running. If you have quit the Workbench and you close your only Shell, you will be unable to communicate with the Amiga. You only recourse is to reboot.

The Shell window may not close if any processes that were lauched from the Shell are still running. Even though the window stays open, the Shell will not accept new input. You must terminate those processes before the window will close. For example, if you opened an editor from the Shell, the Shell will not close until you exit the editor.
