Howto Exit swift-language terminal mode

I'm having problems about how to exit the swift-language's terminal mode.
I type swift in terminal on my Mac Air (Yosemite),
And I got to swift's terminal mode,, something similar to python's.
But in python i can use quit() to exit that mode.
However, in swift,, I didn't find such a method..
So,, I exit the whole terminal by 'command + q'..
Then, I got gabbage like these:
20282 0.0 0.0 0 0 ?? Z 8:14PM 0:00.00 (repl_swift)
20372 0.0 0.0 2441988 652 s000 S+ 8:30PM 0:00.00 grep swift
20168 0.0 0.0 0 0 ?? Z 8:00PM 0:00.00 (repl_swift)

What's worse,,, even kill -9 can't kill the repl_swift process.

I guess the only thing I can do is reboot now..
But really curious why~~ Is the swift-terminal mode still in beta version? :)


Type control-d to exit REPL.

control-d is the end of file character and it's used by various command line tools to mark the end of user input.
