Hm? Am I missing something here? Excerpt from the bash(1) man-page:

       set [--abefhkmnptuvxBCHP] [-o option] [arg ...]
              -e      Exit  immediately  if a simple command (see
                      SHELL GRAMMAR above) exits with a  non-zero
                      status.   The  shell  does  not exit if the
                      command that fails is part of an  until  or
                      while  loop,  part of an if statement, part
                      of a && or || list,  or  if  the  command's
                      return value is being inverted via !.

So bash doesn't crash or burn - is this behaviour limited to bash?


Or go for generality ... Add a programming language for extensibility
and write part of the program in that language.
