function drupal_exit

7.x drupal_exit($destination = NULL)

Performs end-of-request tasks.

In some cases page requests need to end without calling drupal_page_footer(). In these cases, call drupal_exit() instead. There should rarely be a reason to call exit instead of drupal_exit();


$destination: If this function is called from drupal_goto(), then this argument will be a fully-qualified URL that is the destination of the redirect. This should be passed along to hook_exit() implementations.
