    Exit () vs Die()

    I know that it stops the script dead, but how would I make it just stop the current script. Lets say I am making a script that lets a user enter info, but if the info he provided doesn't meet my character requirements so I use the exit; or die; & show the form again.

    I would like to for the rest of my site to finish loading, but for the processing script for the info to stop only. Like for my footer of my page I have it in a footer.php & include it at the bottom of each page. When I use the exit function the footer wont load since the page has been stopped dead.

    If I haven't explained clearly I can explain more....

    According to the manual, exit and die do the same thing - output a message and terminate the current script. Just wrap your script in a gigantic "if" condition. Process the script if the condition is met. Don't process the script if it isn't.

    to exit processing of an include'd script, you can use 'return false'. The page that included it will carry on.
