Re: cygwin bash include scripting and error code return question
John Fairhall wrote:
I have a cygwin bash script running on 32 bit XP.
I have a windows BAT script calling bash, like so:
bash mainScript.sh 2>&1 | tee %LOGFILE%
bash mailBuild.sh %ERRORLEVEL% %LOGFILE%
What I was hoping was that bash would propagate the shell script's return code to the external OS, but as far as I can see the windows ERRORLEVEL is always 0.
Is there a way to make bash do this?
Question -- is %ERRORLEVEL% returning the value of bash or the value of 'tee'?
I am guessing it returns the value of 'tee'.
If you want to do what you are doing...um...
bash -o pipefail -c "mainScript.sh >| tee %LOGFILE%"
should do it...
