yes, but the $? in perl is different from the $? in bash.
I test the curl command in bash and in perl:
[larry@august-dev perl]$ curl --max-time 3 2>&1 curl: (6) name lookup timed out [larry@august-dev perl]$ echo $? 6
and if I put it in perl like:
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my $result = `curl --max-time 3 2>&1`; print "exit status: $?\n"; print "result:\n", $result, "\n";
then I got:
[larry@august-dev perl]$ ./ exit status: 1536 result: curl: (6) name lookup timed out
How does perl translate the bash $? 6 to its own $? 1536 ?
Is there a convenient way to translate it back? </code>
