vmsish - Perl pragma to control VMS-specific language features
use vmsish 'status'; # or '$?' use vmsish 'exit'; use vmsish 'time';
use vmsish; no vmsish 'time';
If no import list is supplied, all possible VMS-specific features are assumed. Currently, there are three VMS-specific features available: 'status' (a.k.a '$?'), 'exit', and 'time'.
$?and system return the native VMS exit status instead of emulating the POSIX exit status.
exit 1produce a successful exit (with status SS$_NORMAL), instead of emulating UNIX
exit 1to indicate an error. As with the CRTL's
exit 0is also mapped to an exit status of SS$_NORMAL, and any other argument to
exit()is used directly as Perl's exit status.
