Hi every one,

I am currently working on a server program which executes a series of system commands on receiving a messgae from the client(in C). what the server essentially does is he cd's into a particular directory and executes a shell script that calls make utility and does some other functions. I want to intimate the client whether the make utility was successful in building the source code. Currently i am using the system function in C to execute the shell script. I know that make return a value of zero if the build was successful. My problem is that i dont know how to return this value to the C program through the system function call.. Could someone help me out in this regard. Any better approach to this problem can be taken??

Thanking you in anticipation..

forgot to add one more thing..

i am executing two commands using the system function..

system(cd [folder_in_which_make_is_present];./make.sh]);

what i want is the return value of the make call in the shell script..
