in reply to different between die and exit
Update: corrected as per ikegami's comment.
It makes no sense to talk of "by default" for die. There's no argument to specify the exit code, so it can't be omitted to use the default.
Also, die always returns non-zero ($! || ($?>>8) || 255).
Once (shame on you!)
Twice (shame on me!)
More often than I'd like to be
All the time
