Tk::exit - End the application

=for category Binding Events and Callbacks


    use Tk qw(exit);


Terminate the process, returning I<returnCode> to the
system as the exit status.
If I<returnCode> isn't specified then it defaults
to 0.

If calling C<exit> from code invoked via a Tk callback then
this Tk version of C<exit> cleans up more reliably than using
the perl C<exit>.

=head1 CAVEATS

Using C<exit> from a forked process will terminate both the child
process B<and> the parent process. As C<Tk::exit> is imported by
default one should use C<CORE::exit> in the forked process instead.
