( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I can't find any documentation that explains this differing behaviour.

This is the documentation for exit (as produced by help exit):

Quits the CMD.EXE program (command interpreter) or the current batch script. EXIT [/B] [exitCode] /B specifies to exit the current batch script instead of CMD.EXE. If executed from outside a batch script, it will quit CMD.EXE exitCode specifies a numeric number. if /B is specified, sets ERRORLEVEL that number. If quitting CMD.EXE, sets the p +rocess exit code with that number.

The bevahiour of exit(1) isn't defined, and there's no reason to believe it's valid. (It's no like you can do echo(foo) or perl(file.pl), and exit(1) is no different.) You provided garbage, and received garbage in return (GIGO).


In reply to Re: "exit 1" and "exit(1)" are apparently not the same by ikegami

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
