Pkg vs. shell REPL-mode

pkg

#1

I just noticed how the Pkg REPL-mode is “sticky” in the sense that after issuing a command in it you remain in Pkg mode, while the shell REPL-mode is not. I’m curious if the inconsistency is deliberate, and if so what the rationale is?


#2

Help mode is not sticky either (which is good, imo). Shell mode could be sticky, imo.


#3

Agreed. Would be nice if there were flags you could set to change the default behavior as well.


#4

I have submitted a PR to make the shell mode sticky.
