How to stop the "> in the command prompt

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.


Thank you for your help,


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.

Yesssss! Thank you again, guelphdad.
