    XXCOPY TECHNICAL BULLETIN #031

    From:    Kan Yabumoto           tech@xxcopy.com
    To:      XXCOPY user
    Subject: XXCOPY's Exit Code (for ERRORLEVEL checking)
    Date:    2004-09-09  (revised)
    ===============================================================================
    
    Introduction:
    
      Upon the completion of execution, Windows (and DOS) programs return
      a 16-bit value (8-bit value in DOS) to the parent process.  XXCOPY
      is of no exception.  The value is usually referred to as Exit code
      which is also widely known as the ERRORLEVEL value in batch file
      programming.  Due to the DOS compatibility, the batch program can
      examine only the low order 8-bit value (0 - 255) for testing.  The
      exit code provides a mechanism to evaluate the result of the program
      execution which can be incorporated in a conditional branch operation
      (for IF ERRORLEVEL n GOTO ...).
    
      For related topics on batch file technique, see, XXTB #19.
