exit(1) User Commands exit(1)
exit, return, goto - shell built-in functions to enable the execution of the shell to advance beyond its sequence of steps
exit [ ( expr )]
exit will cause the calling shell or shell script to exit with the exit status specified by n. If n is omitted the exit status is that of
the last command executed (an EOF will also cause the shell to exit.)
return causes a function to exit with the return value specified by n. If n is omitted, the return status is that of the last command exe-
exit will cause the calling shell or shell script to exit, either with the value of the status variable or with the value specified by the
The goto built-in uses a specified label as a search string amongst commands. The shell rewinds its input as much as possible and searches
for a line of the form label: possibly preceded by space or tab characters. Execution continues after the indicated line. It is an error to
jump to a label that occurs between a while or for built-in command and its corresponding end.
exit will cause the calling shell or shell script to exit with the exit status specified by n. The value will be the least significant 8
bits of the specified status. If n is omitted then the exit status is that of the last command executed. When exit occurs when executing
a trap, the last command refers to the command that executed before the trap was invoked. An end-of-file will also cause the shell to exit
except for a shell which has the ignoreeof option (See set below) turned on.
return causes a shell function or '.' script to return to the invoking script with the return status specified by n. The value will be the
least significant 8 bits of the specified status. If n is omitted then the return status is that of the last command executed. If return
is invoked while not in a function or a '.' script, then it is the same as an exit.
On this man page, ksh(1) commands that are preceded by one or two * (asterisks) are treated specially in the following ways:
1. Variable assignment lists preceding the command remain in effect when the command completes.
2. I/O redirections are processed after variable assignments.
3. Errors cause a script that contains them to abort.
4. Words, following a command preceded by ** that are in the format of a variable assignment, are expanded with the same rules as a vari-
able assignment. This means that tilde substitution is performed after the = sign and word splitting and file name generation are not
