# Description

The OFF command will close down all current jBASE programs, but will stop if encounters a non-jBASE program. Thus to be fully effective, only jBASE programs should be running.

On UNIX for example, the .profile might have:

exec MAIN.PROG
1

or

exec jsh
1

If the .profile looks like this:

MAIN.PROG
1

or

jsh
1

The UNIX shell will be kept active and the effect of the OFF command will be to return to the UNIX shell.
