Exit return codes

Post by ylafont » Fri Apr 20, 2018 12:07 pm

Description of problem or question:

Cannot seem to find proper use of how to read the exit code when processing a file in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (CLI). Has this been document somewhere?

Thank you.

Think found the answer somewhere.. please alert if incorrect.

if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then #move files if conversion was a success
cp "/tmp/$fileName" "$folder/"
rm "/tmp/$fileName"
fi

Anything other than 0 is a failure.
