in thread system() does not wait

The following line of code were executed immediately after the system() and produced the out put below: #CODE $exit_value = $? >> 8; $signal_num = $? & 127; $dumped_core = $? & 128; print "$?\n"; print "$exit_value\n"; print "$signal_num\n"; print "$dumped_core\n";
