I hope it is okay to ask something about a downlevel product.

_? is documented to contain 0,1,2 or 3.
I have a "start"-command where it returns: 1330597711
(This is 4F4F4F4Fh)

Why is this?
What does this mean?

Is it too soon to bump this question?

BTW: It is *NOT* 4NT8-specific. It happens with other shells as well.

Does anyone know the answer?

--OR--

Rex,

Do you want me to open a [Private Support Incident] for this rather
insignificant matter?

That's returned by a START /WAIT so the parser knows not to continue until the started process exits.

Okay, thanks!

I'll adjust the scripts accordingly.

(4DOS on WinME returns 0, 4NT6A on WinME returns 4F4F4F4F;
you learn everyday.)
