Found in an old application (circa 2002):
exit; /* just in case.*/ return false;
In case of what? Are we not trusting the
exit statement anymore?
This reminds me of a West Wing scene from the episode Swiss Diplomacy:
Bartlet: This meeting doesn’t go in the Sit Room anymore, okay? I don’t know why the hell it’s here. This isn’t a military operation.
Leo: It’s a secure room.
Bartlet: My office is a secure room, too, isn’t it? Please, somebody tell me it is, or I gotta go pack some stuff. You see my point?
exit doesn’t work, I gotta go pack some stuff.
