irssi: Exit the application cleanly and quitting any server(s).
$ /quit
try on your machine

The command "/quit" is used in various computer programs, particularly in chat or messaging applications, to disconnect or exit from the current session. When the command is executed, it typically closes the program, terminates the connection, or signs the user out, depending on the context in which it is used.

For example, in a chat application, typing "/quit" in the chat box and hitting enter would typically close the chat program and disconnect the user from the chat server. This is similar to clicking the "X" button to exit the program.

In an email client or an internet relay chat (IRC) client, the command "/quit" may sign the user out of the account or close the client, respectively.

Overall, "/quit" is a command used to gracefully exit or disconnect from a program or session.
