exit command




The exit command terminates a script started via the run or source command. If scripts are nested, only the innermost script is left.

=> setenv inner 'echo entry inner; exit; echo inner done'
=> setenv outer 'echo entry outer; run inner; echo outer done'
=> run outer
entry outer
entry inner
outer done

When executed outside a script a warning is written. Following commands are not executed.

=> echo first; exit; echo last
exit not allowed from main input shell.

Return value

$? is always set to 0 (true).
