whenever oserror not handled correctlyr

When I run this using F5 (Execute as script)

whenever oserror exit 1

start non_existing_file.sql

I get this as a result.

Commit complete.

Given that the file does not exist it seems like I should get an error. I had a coworker run the same in SQL Developer and he got:

Error report -

SP2-0310: Unable to open file “non_existing_file.sql”


Why doesn’t TOAD do something similar? In TOAD, it appears that everything ran fine - even though it was asked to run a non-existant file. I’ve looked through the options and couldn’t find anything addressing this behavior.
