Here is some info about exit.

exit status

Exits the current Perl process immediately with that value given by status. This could be the entire Perl script you are running,
or only a child process created by fork

If status is omitted, the function exits with 0. You shouldn't use exit to abort a subroutine if there's any chance that someone
might want to trap whatever error happened. Use die instead, which can be trapped by an eval.

Hope that helps

Use exit(0) if your program finishes with succes.
Use exit(1) (or any other value other than 0) - to alert that your program finished with a problem.

To check the exit status from the shell use:
echo $? on ksh and sh and
echo $status on csh
