Description[edit]

Start a "/bin/sh" shell process for the user. The mged prompt will be replaced by a system prompt for the shell, and the user may perform any legal shell commands. The mged process waits for the shell process to finish, which occurs when the user exits the shell. This only works in a command window associated with a tty (i.e., the window used to start mged in classic mode).


Example(s)[edit]

mged> %
Starts a new shell process
$ ls -al
Issue any shell commands
$ exit
Exit the shell
mged>
Continue editing in MGED
