Prefix any command with a given string, or run a series of subcommands.
REPL does not come pre-compiled, so you’ll need Swift 5.0 or later in order to build it. (This version of Swift comes with Xcode 10.2 or later).
Alternatively, download Swift from Swift.org, using Homebrew, swiftenv, or via some other method.

- While REPL does support the up and down arrow keys with its own internal buffer, it does not support any other interaction with your terminal history (such as !!).
- REPL does not currently forward colors from the output of commands run through it.
- REPL’s command prompt is not dynamic — it’s based off of my command prompt,
which means it will always look as it does in the examples above.
This means that even if your normal prompt is this:
hostname:~/path/to/cwd username$, in REPL it will show up like this:

REPL doesn’t leave anything behind, so you can use the normal uninstall method:
$ brew uninstall repl
$ mint uninstall REPL
$ sudo rm /usr/local/bin/repl
