Go from `pkg>` prompt to `julia>` prompt?

Very basic question. How does one go from pkg> prompt to julia> prompt in the Julia REPL? For example, if I just press enter at an empty shell> prompt, it takes me back to julia> prompt. Currently, to go from pkg> to julia>, I first press ; which takes me to >shell, then I press enter, which takes me to julia>. It is not a big deal, but is there a way to exit pkg> directly and go to julia>?

Thank you.

Just hit delete/backspace with your cursor at the beginning of the line.


Thank you! I knew there had to be a way to do this. I even tried searching about it, but could not find it. This is great. Thanks!

CTRL+C is an alternative way.

Thank you.

It’s documented in the start here: https://julialang.github.io/Pkg.jl/v1/getting-started/#2.-Getting-Started-1

Pkg comes with its own REPL mode, which can be entered from the Julia REPL by pressing ] . To get back to the Julia REPL press backspace or ^C.
