From manual page:

It is not clear for me, I think, that exit terminates execution not only current script but all scripts above current script.

It terminates execution all application, I think.

I have no idea what the problem is, I don't know what "scripts above current script" means.

Please try to explain the problem precisely.

we have:
"exit — Output a message and terminate the current script".
What does "current script" there mean?

we have:
"If called from the global scope, then execution of the current script file is ended. If the current script file was included or required, then control is passed back to the calling file".

With "exit", all scripts that require or include current script file are terminated too.

Maybe script is not limited to the file, and this is source my misunderstanding, sorry.

IMHO, "current script" is fine here, and is distinct enough from "current script file".
