    How to stop the "> in the command prompt

    Hi,
    I'm working my way through the book, Build Your Own Database Driven WebSite..... Trying to build the joke database in chapter 2. I forgot to put in a comma , and now have "> every time I hit enter. Can't go anywhere. Do I bail out and start over? I just tried \c with no change.

    Sigh

    Thank you for your help,
    KathPoole

    All you need to do is type another " and then \c
    same if you had a dangling single quote you'd type '\c

    and it will exit back to the prompt for you.
