in thread perl and windows batch

Actually, I found that when I used exit /b in the batch file, I was not getting the return code in my perl. Once I stripped the /b I did.

    Executed from within a batch file, /b sets the %errorlevel% environment variable and exits the batch file, rather than exit cmd.exe and return the value as it process exit code.

    Outside a batch file, (ie. on the command line), /b is a non-op.
