in reply to question on exitcode provided by status() method of Win32::Job
Thanks for the responses.
My original thought was to do as you suggested, and assume that 13, the exit code returned, is a system code. I've looked it up, and so far all I've been able to find is that it means "The data is invalid."
Now I'm trying to figure out (1) what exactly is meant by "The data is invalid", and (2) why the Win32::Job Perl module would sometimes get that error when running a spawned script.
Any information or thoughts about (1) or (2) would be greatly appreciated.
