Terminate MATLAB program




exit terminates the current session of MATLAB® after running finish.m, if the file finish.m exists. It performs the same as quit and takes the same termination options, such as force. Call exit from the MATLAB command prompt. To interrupt a MATLAB command, see Stop Execution.

exit(code) returns exit code when calling a MATLAB command from the system command line.


As an alternative to the exit function, click the Close box in the MATLAB desktop.
