Linux seems to have adopted sysexits.h too, which provides error codes such as EX_USAGE and EX_CANTCREAT. However, in FreeBSD at least the most common programming style is to use 1 for error and 0 for success - e.g. from style(9): errx(1, "number overflowed"); -- Bruce Cran _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
