terminates a Wolfram Language kernel session.
- Quit quits only the Wolfram Language kernel, not the front end.
- To quit a notebook front end, choose the Quit menu item.
- All kernel definitions are lost when the kernel session terminates.
- If you have kept the definitions in a file or in a notebook you can always reenter them in a subsequent session.
- Before terminating a kernel session, the Wolfram Language executes any delayed value that has been assigned to the global variable $Epilog. Conventionally, this attempts to read in a file .m of commands to be executed before termination.
- On most computer systems, Quit[n] terminates the Wolfram Language kernel, passing the integer n as an exit code to the operating system.
- Exit is a synonym for Quit.
