Try -exit 0-

Absolutely. However, there are cases in which a program (usually a
subroutine to some other program) should exit without returning error. Thanks, ben

If you add a return code, then the code will stop within the loop:


prog foo3
   local num 1 2 3
   foreach n of local num {
	if "`n'"=="2" {
           di "`n' => exit"
           exit 119
        }
   di "`n'"
   mac shift
   }
 di "not to be reached"
end

. discard

. foo3
1
2 => exit
r(119);


prog foo4
         local list 1 2 3
         foreach l of local list {
                 di "`l'"
                 exit 119
         }
         di "howdy"
end


. foo4
1
r(119);
