Scheme template does not terminate, instead enters repl session

Problem description:
The Scheme REPL template does not terminate after execution. It will only do so should the program terminate due to a user error.

Expected behavior:
The program should terminate after execution.

Actual behavior:
The interpreter starts a REPL session after execution and remains running. User must hit “Stop” to terminate.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a Scheme Repl.
  2. (Use the existing demo.)
  3. Click Run.


  1. Add the line (exit) at the end of the program.
  2. Click Run.

It looks like it continues running due to being in the Scheme prompt, Guile. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Thanks @adamElchert3, agreed it is running the Guile prompt. But at least to me, that seems unusual. None of the other Replit templates I’ve used exhibit that behavior with programs. I thought that to be a minor issue with the template or whatnot. Am I mistaken?
