You normally can't just stop it without also killing the interpreter.  Either
start it as a background process (there's the Unix shell script functionality
to be able to start it as a process), or if you want to stay in the
interpreter, run it as a thread (or fork).  You might want to take a look at

To kill the process itself you can always (p)kill the interpreter process
from which Spiffy was started.
