I'm executing a command on SCO Open SERVER 5 with the following call:
soc = rexec(&hoststr, (u_short)service_entry->s_port, user, passwd, cmd, &fd2p);
I can read the stdout of the command from the socket soc, and I can read the stderr of the command from the socket fd2p.
How can I get the exit code of the command?

The only way is to get it from stdout or stderr.

Instead of running "cmd", run the command "sh -c 'cmd;echo $?'" or "sh -c 'cmd;echo $?'>&2" and get the rc from the last line of stdout or stderr respectively.
