exit - exit the shell


exit [CODE]


exit is a special builtin that causes the shell to exit. Either 255 or the CODE supplied is used, whichever is lesser. Otherwise, the exit status will be that of the last command executed.

If exit is called while sourcing a file (using the source builtin) the rest of the file will be skipped, but the shell itself will not exit.

The --help or -h option displays help about using this command.
