       backup_quit - Leaves interactive mode

       quit [-help]

       q [-h]

       The backup quit command exits interactive mode, returning the issuer to the regular shell prompt at which the backup or backup interactive
       command was issued to enter interactive mode. The command has no effect when issued outside interactive mode. Issuing the Ctrl-D command
       also exits interactive mode.

       To exit interactive mode, all jobs must be completed. Use the backup jobs command to list any jobs currently pending or executing, and the
       backup kill command to terminate them as necessary.

	   Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.

       The following command exits interactive mode:

	  backup> quit
