|vmsish status||This makes $? and system return the native VMS exit status instead of emulating the POSIX exit status.|
|vmsish exit||This makes exit 1 produce a successful exit (with status SS$_NORMAL), instead of emulating UNIX exit(), which considers exit 1 to indicate an error. As with the CRTLs exit() function, exit 0 is also mapped to an exit status of SS$_NORMAL, and any other argument to exit() is used directly as Perls exit status.|
|vmsish time||This makes all times relative to the local time zone, instead of the default of Universal Time (a.k.a Greenwich Mean Time, or GMT).|
This suppresses printing of VMS status messages to SYS$OUTPUT and
SYS$ERROR if Perl terminates with an error status, and allows
programs that are expecting unix-style Perl to avoid having to parse
VMS error messages. It does not suppress any messages from Perl
itself, just the messages generated by DCL after Perl exits. The DCL
symbol $STATUS will still have the termination status, but with a
high-order bit set:
The hushed flag has a global scope during compilation: the exit() or die() commands that are compiled after vmsish hushed will be hushed when they are executed. Doing a no vmsish hushed turns off the hushed flag.
The status of the hushed flag also affects output of VMS error messages from compilation errors. Again, you still get the Perl error message (and the code in $STATUS)
You can also control the hushed flag at run-time, using the built-in routine vmsish::hushed(). Without argument, it returns the hushed status. Since vmsish::hushed is built-in, you do not need to use vmsish to call it.
Note that an exit() or die() that is compiled hushed because of use vmsish is not un-hushed by calling vmsish::hushed(0) at runtime.
The messages from error exits from inside the Perl core are generally more serious, and are not suppressed.
