system and $?
I'm getting -1 on all platforms and perl versions I tried:
perl -le 'system "no-such-program"; print "$? $^O $]"'
Non-existent; I don't have TV
Non-existent; my TV doesn't have/need a remote
Under my control; I watch alone
Under the control of whoever shouts loudest
Under the control of whoever gets it first
One of many, and the TV has a mind of its own
