Julia Language Shell Scripting and Piping Using Shell from inside the REPL


Example

From inside the interative Julia shell (also known as REPL), you can access the system's shell by typing ; right after the prompt:

shell>

From here on, you can type any shell comand and they will be run from inside the REPL:

shell> ls
Desktop     Documents   Pictures   Templates
Downloads   Music       Public     Videos

To exit this mode, type backspace when the prompt is empty.
