# Running baspl++

## 1. Start and Termination

baspl++ can be started in two different ways:

• By double-clicking on the baspl++ icon on the desktop or by selecting baspl++ from the desktop's Applications menu.

This is the most simple way for users which are not accustomed to the UNIX command-line.

• By typing

baspl++

from the command-line of a terminal window.

When baspl++ is started, after a short moment, the main window appears.

baspl++ may be terminated by either selecting File->Quit in the main menu, or by typing ctrl-d in the Python console. Alternatively, exit() can be typed.
