I’m using sqllite3 on MacOSX’s adb shell to view my application database using:
#sqlite3 mydb.db SQLite version 3.5.9 Enter ".help" for instructions sqlite> quit ...> .quit ...>
After I wrongly typed the
quit command above, instead of the
.quit for example, the shell goes into the
...> prompt where none of the known commands seem to work. I can’t even get out by CTRL+C, CTRL+/, ESC, etc.
I have to APPLE+Q i.e. quit the terminal instance to restart. I know this isn’t exactly a programming question, but it really is annoying enough for me to write here.
Does any one know how to restore sanity to the terminal after such errors without relaunching terminal?
; and press enter.
This might fix it. This works for other sql stuff. Let me know if it works.
You have just to type
You can even try this
- For Unix Terminal
(it sends End Of File to stdin).
