PHP die() and the exit()

The die()  and the exit() functions are more of the same. They Perform the same activity.
They print a message and end the current script. 

Mostly, these functions are used to terminate the current script if it returns false.


exit(message); die(message);


<?php     $filepath = '/path/file';     $file = fopen($filepath, 'r') or exit("unable to open file ($filepath)"); ?>
