Hi,

I would like to obtain the exit code from a child program. But all the
methods I tried were in vain. Here are two files that i used to test.

C:\> type a.bat
@echo off
exit /b 29

C:\> type test.rb
system('a.bat')
puts $?
puts $? >> 8
exit

C:\>ruby test.rb
pid 5952 exit 0
0

Seems like in Windows, Ruby can never see the number 29 anyway.

Can anyone help me?
Thanks in advance.
