[thelist] exiting out of a function using a nested function

I have a page where some data is being loaded. If that data is not
loaded, I have to stop execution of a function, but I cannot figure
out how to exit out...let me show ya (easier than explaining)

This is what I got:

function init()
   checkData();   // <-- checking to see if the data is present

function checkData()
   if(the data is not there)
      hey, you have no data!
      return false;???

so the function init() is calling checkData() to see if its there. If
it is not available, I want to STOP executing init(), and exit

What I can't figure out is how to pass "false" back to init() from
checkData so I can test on it and use "return" to back out.
