By throwing an error in this way, other parts of the application have an opportunity to handle the error rather than stopping the application altogether. If the error bubbles all the way up to the process without being handled, then the process will exit and a non-zero exit code will returned, so the end result is the same.
If you are using `process.exit()` only for specifying the exit code, you can set [`process.exitCode`](https://nodejs.org/api/process.html#process_process_exitcode) (introduced in Node.js 0.11.8) instead.
## Rule Details
This rule aims to prevent the use of `process.exit()` in Node.js JavaScript. As such, it warns whenever `process.exit()` is found in code.
