NAME

Die - Perl like die routine for note + exit

SYNOPSIS

use Die;

die "I don't like you, bruh\n"; # new line at the end == no stack trace
die "something looks broken";   # no new line at end == stack trace
die X::SomeShinyException.new;  # this still works like normal

DESCRIPTION

Raku avoids many magics prevalent in Perl land, among which is automatically omitting the stack trace if the &die routine is given a string with a new line at the end.

In Raku, you do the same with note "foo" and exit 1... or use this shiny module that adds Perl behaviour to &die

EXPORTS

-head2 &die

die "I don't like you, bruh\n"; # new line at the end == no stack trace
die "something looks broken";   # no new line at end == full stack trace
die X::SomeShinyException.new;  # this still works like normal

Works just like core &die except stack trace will be omitted if you include a newline at the end of the die message.

Note that Perl's &die exits with status 255, while core Raku &die and this module's &die exit with status 1.
