This is the main module of mimikatz, it contains quick commands to operate with the tool.
For this particular one, no need to prefix command by the module name (but it works too), eg: exit is the same as standard::exit.

Commands: exit, cls, answer, coffe, sleep, log, base64, version, cd

exit

Quits mimikatz, after cleaning routines.

mimikatz # exit
Bye!

cls

Clears screen, by filling the console window with spaces.

mimikatz # cls

Remark: it does not work with remote execution tools like psexec, meterpreter or others.

answer

Gives the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.

mimikatz # answer
42.

coffee

Because everyone deserves a good coffee.

Logs all outputs to a file (mimikatz.log by default).
