    is error_exit a valid command?

    Hi guys,

    I wrote the following code:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    echo this is simply to demonstrate the use of error_exit
    error_exit i am exiting..
    echo this won't be displayed
    I execute this and get the following:
    Code:
    this is simply to demonstrate the use of error_exit
    ./errorHandle.sh: line 4: error_exit: command not found
    this won't be displayed

    I am sure error_exit is a valid command. isn't it?

    Not that I've heard of. "exit -1" might do what you want.

    Ya thats right, even i had been playing around with some shell script to configure my startup applications on bootup. Well it should either exit 0 or exit 1.

    Since you wanted to exit with an error use "exit 1"

    It is not. But you could create one easily.

    Code:
    error_exit()
    {
        exit 1
    }
