Closes an interactive session with a local process.
Exit-PSHostProcess cmdlet closes an interactive session with a local process that you have
opened by running the
Enter-PSHostProcess cmdlet. You run the
Exit-PSHostProcess cmdlet from
within the process, when you are finished debugging or troubleshooting a script that is running
within a process. Beginning in PowerShell 6.2, this cmdlet is supported on non-Windows platforms.
Example 1: Exit a process
[Process:1520]: PS> Exit-PSHostProcess PS>
In this example, you have been working in an active process to debug a script running in a runspace
in the process, as described in
Enter-PSHostProcess. After you type the
exit command to exit the
debugger, run the
Exit-PSHostProcess cmdlet to close your interactive session with the process.
The cmdlet closes your session in the process, and returns you to the
PS C:\> prompt.
