return

See the current Perl documentation for return.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


return - get out of a function early



return EXPR

return



Returns from a subroutine, eval(), or do FILE with the value given in EXPR. Evaluation of EXPR may be in list, scalar, or void context, depending on how the return value will be used, and the context may vary from one execution to the next (see wantarray()). If no EXPR is given, returns an empty list in list context, an undefined value in scalar context, or nothing in a void context.

(Note that in the absence of a return, a subroutine, eval, or do FILE will automatically return the value of the last expression evaluated.)
