But once in that mode, I typed selfupdate and was exited from the the mode after completion! Could not run upgrade outdated in the wake… In that case, what’s the use of such a shell mode ?
Selfupdate updates port itself (base). Probably makes sense to exit current running port after such an update. Could it recognize it was in shell mode spawn new port command? I don’t know.
