return(1)                            fish                            return(1)

NAME
       return -- stop the current inner function

   Synopsis

       function NAME; [COMMANDS...;] return [STATUS]; [COMMANDS...;] end

   Description
       return halts a currently running function. The exit status is set to
       STATUS if it is given.

       It is usually added inside of a conditional block such as an if
       statement or a switch statement to conditionally stop the executing
       function and return to the caller, but it can also be used to specify
       the exit status of a function.

   Example
       The following code is an implementation of the false command as a fish
       function

       function false
           return 1
       end
