Sorry. 'standardization' : what language is that?

Bummer. We have a program using QSH to run a third party utility that
converts PDF files to TIF files. I was hoping the error numbers had
some kind of standardization.

Thanks Scott.

Subject: Re: QSH exit status - Where to find descriptions

I don't think there's anything like what you're looking for. Exit
codes have no standard that I'm aware of. Any programmer can put any
number from 0-255 in an exit code.

By convention, zero=success, and non-zero=fail.

Beyond that, you have to look at it on a per-program basis. You have to
ask the programmer what each exit code means (or hope it's documented
somewhere.)

Hopefully this is an easy question.

Can I find text descriptions of QSH exit status codes? Something
like
msgf/QSHxxxx. I'm trying to track down an exit code of 255 but
haven't been successful yet in locating a description.
