in thread perl and sudo basic question

I haven't seen hello in the display OR the file /tmp/testfile has not been created. The "result" code is 256, what does it mean.
Normaly you would do my $realexitcode = $exitcode >> 8;, assuming that Sudo.pm uses system to execute sudo -- in this case this is 1. Looking into sudos man-page:
RETURN VALUES Upon successful execution of a program, the return value from sudo will simply be the return value of the program that was executed. Otherwise, sudo quits with an exit value of 1 if there is a configuration/permission problem or if sudo cannot execute the given command.

tomte
